The hake (Merluccius merluccius) is one of the main commercial and heavily exploited species of the demersal fishery of the coastal countries in the Adriatic Sea. This paper aims to the test the comparability among two different methods for the assessment of the hake stock, specifically in the Adriatic Geographical SubAreas (GSAs) n° 18. Data from 1996-2006 trawl surveys carried out in the GSA n° 18 (MEDITS) were analysed by using both Empirical Indicators and SURBA method. The paper highlights the comparability of the results obtained with the application of the two methods.
