ABSTRACT

This publication comprehends two papers: (a) Zoogeographical categories relevant to fisheries management in the Mediterranean and (b) Approaches to effort control of potential relevance for the Mediterranean. These have been prepared in response to a recommendation of the twenty-third session of the General Fisheries Commission for the Mediterranean, Rome, Italy, 7-10 July 1998. They are intended to provide background information in the field of fisheries management to the newly-established Scientific Advisory Committee of GFCM.
