In the framework of the project series PESCPROF-1, 2 and 3 (2003-2007), the deepwater benthic megafauna occurring off the Canary, Madeira and Azores islands between 250 and 2500 m of depth has being studied and their potential fishery resources ascertained and assessed, as an alternative to over-exploited traditional fisheries.
A major objective of this survey in the Macaronesian region (Northeast and Eastern Central Atlantic) is to gather a core of oceanographic, biological, ecological and fisheries data, in order to build up a scientific and technological basis which will support management measures for a responsible exploitation in a near future according to the FAO ecosystem-based approach. Upon conclusion of research activities, the information and know-how gathered should guarantee anticipative regulations and precautionary management of these potential small-scale fisheries to be developed in restricted deep-sea grounds off the islands.
Specimens were collected using four types of baited traps and two types of longlines during a series of cruises along the upper and mid-slopes of these islands and neighbouring seamounts, between 2003 and 2006.
Catches were obtained following a ...
