The investigations on the turbot populations in the Romanian sector focused on: catch evolution, fishing effort and C.P.U.E. (catch per unit effort), population structure, biological parameters and fishable agglomerations’ biomasses. At the same time, the main biological characteristics of the turbot are presented, referring to the length class structure, mass and age. Also, the paper refers to the present trends in the evolution of the exploitable turbot stocks. At the end, the legislative frame in which the fishing activity takes place is presented, focusing on territorial waters and economical exclusive zone, the main reglementations being mentioned.
