Abstract

For an integrated management of fishery resources, the whole environment - resource - exploitation assemblage and ecological, biological and fishery management measures must be considered. Fishery management is a complex exploitation action and includes a series of measures concerning fishing effort, the type of techniques which can be used (overall dimensions, mesh size), gear selectivity, limiting access to resources (minimum size of fish targeted, fishing quotas, banned fishing seasons and areas). In view of the above, this research aimed at improving the selectivity of gillnets used for turbot fishing at the Romanian Black Sea coast. The estimated results are protecting juivenile turbot generations by elaborating some measures on the minimum size of turbot speciments which can be fished and minimum mesh size.
