ObjectivesSince 1988, the IFREMER Fisheries Resources laboratory of Boulogne/mer has carried out a pluri-annual program to estimate the recruitment and the abundance per age group of commercial fish species in the eastern Channel and southern North Sea, of great importance for French fisheries. These data are obtained from an annual bottom trawl survey allowing precise description of the distribution of ichthyological populations. The survey also collects biological information suitable for stock assessments and International Council for the Exploration of the Sea (ICES) working groups.
