Overview: In the Mediterranean, European hake is caught in multispecies fisheries by bottom trawlers that operate over the continental shelf and slope (Goñi et al., 2004), but also by gillnetters and set bottom longliners. Gillnetters and longliners are assumed to be operating in the deep sea (i.e. off the shelf and below 400 m). Similarly, bottom trawlers may also fish on the slope below 400 m and therefore in the deep seas.
