Status of the fish stocks

Where do Belgian commercial fishermen fish? What species do they catch and how much? What is the state of fish stocks in those places, and how exactly is that calculated? When can we speak of a sustainably fished stock?

From data to science-based recommendations Belgian fishermen fish for more than 50 species of fish and shellfish in no fewer than 10 different fishing areas, from the Bay of Biscay in the south to Skagerrak in the north. The status of each of these species in each marine area is evaluated annually.
