Background

Top

This workshop is organized as a follow-up to the Expert Consultation on Small Pelagic fish: stock identification and oceanographic processes influencing their abundance and distribution (Salammbô, Tunisia, 1 - 3 October 2003), and according to the recommendations of the Project’s second Coordination Committee meeting (Salammbô, Tunisia, 11 – 13 February 2004). The program of work agreed upon includes the estimation of abundance and spatial distribution of small pelagic fish in the MedSudMed Project area, taking into account environmental and fishery characteristics, and considering also early life stages distribution pattern. One of the adopted methodological approaches consists in joint acoustic and ichtyoplankton surveys combined with pelagic trawling.

Objectives of the meeting

Top

The scope of this workshop is to present existing sampling designs and data processing procedures adopted in on-going acoustic and ichtyoplankton surveys, compare them and agree on common methodologies to be used during the future joint surveys at sea.

Expected outputs

The expected output of the workshop is a common protocol to be used in the future joint echo surveys and ichtyoplankton surveys.

Participation
