The SG-JP was meant to foster the informal debate among scientists, administrations and stakeholders in order to have specific inputs for future management strategies in the area. The SG-JP was aimed at facilitating: i) the coordination of the scientific activities of monitoring demersal resources in the area as surveys at sea; ii) the debate on monitoring issues regarding fishing activities; iii) the coordination of stock assessment activities on hake (Merluccius merluccius) and Norway lobster (Nephrops norvegicus). A short term workplan was agreed upon. The outcomes of this SG-JP shall be presented at the next GFCM SubRegional Coordination meeting for the Adriatic Sea (April 2018).
