Fishery Resources and Status of Small
Pelagic Fish in Eastern Central Atlantic
Abstract: Eastern Central Atlantic is rich in small pelagic fish, especially sardine, horse mackerel, chub mackerel and so on. The total output of sardine, horse mackerel and chub mackerel during 2011 is 231 × 104 t, accounting for 71.96% of the total of pelagic fish in Eastern Central Atlantic. China has participated in the catch of pelagic fish in Eastern Central Atlantic from the 1990 s, and the output varied from less than one thousand tones of the beginning to more than ten thousand tones at present, gathering some experience for exploiting the pelagic fish resources of Eastern Central Atlantic. This article analyzed the status, catch, fishing ground, mainly fishing nations and littoral countries’ fishery management of small pelagic fish in Eastern Central Atlantic according to the FAO reports and other related materials, aiming at helping related enterprises make a good sense of the fishery resources and status of small pelagic fish, and providing references for actively participating in the catch of pelagic fish resources in Eastern Central Atlantic.
