13 September 2018 - Split, Croatia
AdriaMed Working Group on Demersal Fishery Resources in the Adriatic Sea

The AdriaMed Study Group on Demersal Fisheries Resources (SG-DEM) was held on 13th September 2018 kindly hosted by the Institute of Oceanography and Fisheries of Split (Croatia). The meeting was attended by scientists from the fisheries research institute of Albania, Croatia, Italy, Montenegro and Slovenia.

The SG- DEM, inter alia, with its practical work, has been conceived to contribute to the discussion on the state of fish stocks during the AdriaMed Working Group on Demersal Fisheries Resources (WG-DEM). The SG-DEM focused on the preparatory work for the stock assessment of European hake (Merluccius merluccius) in the Adriatic Sea, in view of the latest adoption of the 20th -SAC workplan that foresees a benchmark assessment of hake in GSA 17- 18 in 2018. The outcomes of this SG-JP will be presented at the next Adriamed Working Group on Demersal Fisheries resources (October 2018).
