The last-decade changes in the Black Sea ecosystem have contributed to the deterioration of the structural and functional components of the marine ecosystem (Maximov V. et al., 2014, 2018). For most fish species on the Romanian seaside, the formation of fish aggregations and the availability of fish forfishing are strongly influenced by the variation in environmental conditions. Fisheries resource management is an integrated process of gathering information, analyzing, planning, consulting, decision- making, allocating resources, and formulating and implementing regulations or rules governing fisheries to ensure the continuity of resource productivity and revenue and other objectives. This paper presents the results obtained in the pelagic expeditions (spring and autumn season) realized in 2018. Data and information regarding the biomass and abundance for the species sprat, picked dogfish and jellyfish are presented.
