In the Cape Verde area, the most importantfisheries are those for tunas, with mean estimatedcatch of 4 000t in the last 10 years. Spiny lobsters(Palinurus charlestoni) are now considered to beoverexploited and a freeze in fishing effort hasbeen recommended. In 2001 demersal catch was21 percent of the total catch in the artisanalfishey. The estimated potentials for demersal are3 000 to 5 000t and for small pelagic 4 500 to6 500t (Carvalho, Morais and Nascimento, 1999).
