Project Details

Description

The NESPMAN (New Species for Management) project is meant to improve the knowledge of the biology and the fisheries of the new species for management. Apart from highly priced turbot, brill, striped red mullet and sea bass, these 12 species comprise also 3 gurnard species and 4 flatfishes. This report presents information for these 12 species that are becoming increasingly important for fisheries in NW Europe, partly due to the generally poor state of some of the main commercial fish species.

DTU tasks in the project:
- Danish fishery for witch flounder: compilation of data and description.
- Assessment of the witch flounder stock in the North Sea and Skagerrak.

The project is coordinated by IMARES, Wageningen UR, The Netherlands.
