Description 
Summary

A compendium of data obtained in the course of fishing prospections: data on experimental fishing catches, fishing turnover of pelagic, coastal and demersal fish and crustaceans, geographic positions. The study has been based on the method of the random stratified prospection per fishery. In the field of acoustic evaluation prospections, we have echosounder and echointegration registers of the area of the Canary Islands for coastal pelagic obtained by hydroacoustics methods. Also available is a database on the Canarian artisan fleet with regard to the characteristics of the fleet and fishing methods.
