Species of fish prohibited from fishing on the Atlantic coasts

Five species of fish are affected by a suspension of fishing for 5 years on the Atlantic coasts. These include sardines, anchovies, mackerel, latcha and horse mackerel.

The decision, published in the Official Bulletin of September 22, 2022, was taken following an opinion from the National Institute for Fisheries Research (INRH) in consultation with the maritime fishing chambers.

The prohibition decision concerns the period from May 1 to June 30 of each year off the Atlantic coasts located between the parallels 22° and 23° to the North over a distance of 15 nautical miles, measured from the baselines.

Fishing for the aforementioned fish will also be prohibited off the Atlantic coast between the parallels 24° and 25° to the North, over a distance of 20 nautical miles, throughout the year.

During these periods, only the INRH is authorized to practice fishing for these species in accordance with its scientific research program.
