Merluccius senegalensis generally occurs at shallower depths than M.
polli, although both species share a wide bathymetric range.
Due to their external resemblance and overlapping occurrence at certain depths, both species are mixed in catches and are commonly marketed as Merluccius spp.
From 2003 to 2009 biological samplings were performed in Mauritanian waters for numerous specimens of M.
polli and M.
senegalensis during 15 commercial fishing trips, seven experimental longline surveys, and three trawl surveys carried out wi...
