The Fisheries Off The Atlantic Coast of Morocco 1950-1997
MetadataShow full item record
The reported landings for the whole coastline off Morocco have been assembled from FAO statistics, Moroccan and Spanish Ministries records, and FAO working group reports. The resulting estimate of reported landings is close to the published statistics from FAO for the years 1975-1997. For the period 1950-1974, the landings obtained are considered to be under-estimates as the reporting structure was not fully in place. Because the Spanish fisheries have been historically important on the coast of Morocco, a more complete description of their catch statistics have been included. In addition, discard rates and unreported landings have been estimated based on several studies in the region.
