Abstract

The present study intends to update a previous study (EC MED92/011) in order to (i) assess the effect of an eight year trawl ban on the demersal resources (over trawlable and non-trawlable bottoms) in the Gulf of Castellammare, and (ii) investigate how these resources are now being exploited by the small-scale fishery, as well as the extent of any social or economic gain arising as a result of the trawl ban. The study is made of two parts: A) biological section, and B) socio-economic section.
