7th Anchovy Workshop

The studies started in 1989 for the management policy of anchovy by our institute, have been continuing with constant monitoring projects since 2005. Since 2013, anchovy has been monitored by our institute both at the sea via acoustic methods and on landing.

In the workshop, Dr. Ekin Akoğlu from METU Erdemli Marine science institute made a presentation entitled “Development of Black Sea Fish Stocks under Changing Environmental and Climatic Conditions” and also Dr. Erdal Üstündağ from General Directorate of Fisheries and Aquaculture made a presentation entitled “Current situation and development of Anchovy fishery in the Black Sea”. Ian Scott from Italy make a presentation entitled “The implementation of stock valuation in fishing activities” in the scope of the iFISH project conducted within TAGEM and finally opinions, suggestions and evaluations of all participants about the present and future of anchovy which is the most important species of Black Sea were taken.
