Overview: There have been several deep-sea gillnet fisheries in recent years that are characterized according to the target species, which in turn depends on the fishing depth and the gear characteristics (e.g. mesh size). These are hake (Merluccius merluccius) (100–600 m), monkfish (100–800 m), deep-sea sharks (800–1 600 m) and deep-water red (or king) crabs (Geryon spp.) (600–1 200 m). These fisheries have taken place both within EEZ limits on the slopes of the European continental shelf and in the high seas on the slopes of Hatton and Rockall Banks.
