Geostatistical techniques were applied and a series of spatial indicators were calculated (occupation, aggregation, location, dispersion, spatial autocorrelation and overlap) to characterize the spatial distributions of European anchovy and sardine during summer. Two ecosystems were compared for this purpose, both located in the Mediterranean Sea: the(More)
When, in 1998, I published a short paper providing " [A] rationale for reconstructing catch time series " , I thought that the proposed concepts and methodology would need to be applied only to countries and regions (e.g., the Caribbean) not well covered in the global FAO database of fisheries landings. Now, 10 years later, a rather different view of global(More)
Wreckfish (Polyprion americanus) is a panoceanic, antitropical distributed species. Despite the high market price, high growth rate, good quality flesh and the potential for aquaculture, research data are scarce. In this study, the growth performance and food intake was investigated in juvenile fish, while gametogenesis was studied in adult fish. Three(More)
PERSEUS project aims to identify the most relevant pressures exerted on the ecosystems of the Southern European Seas (SES), highlighting knowledge and data gaps that endanger the achievement of SES Good Environmental Status (GES) as mandated by the Marine Strategy Framework Directive (MSFD). A complementary approach has been adopted, by a meta-analysis of(More)
Spatial distribution and life history aspects of Pagellus bogaraveo in the eastern Ionian Sea were investigated using the data from 13 different studies carried out in the area from 1983 to 2010. The spatial patterns of the abundance, biomass and mean size showed that the species inhabits the shallow waters of the shelf (<170 m depth) as juveniles up to a(More)
