ResumenRed shrimp (Aristeus antennatus) is the most important demersal resource in the Northwest Mediterranean. In Northeast Spain it is fished by bottom trawling and constitutes a large part of the income for local fishermen’s associations. In Palamós, the most important harbour for this fishery in the area, a management plan regulating this fishery was established in May 2013, aiming to reduce fishing effort and protect juveniles. We investigate whether the management strategy adopted in Palamós is appropriate and how it could be improved according to the stock status and fishery characteristics. For this purpose we analyze the trends of several historical series of data including fishing effort, landings, catch per unit effort (CPUE) and size frequencies in the catches. We found that fishing effort directed to this species has increased massively starting form the second half of the last century, accompanied by a marked decline in CPUE. Overfishing of the stock has been evident since 1984. Given the results obtained in this work, we consider the management strategy recently established in Palamós will be appropriate to achieve the aim of sustainability for the red shrimp fishery © The Author 2014
