ResumenA Long Term Management Plan (LTMP) for the fishery of the deep-sea red shrimp Aristeus antennatus was officially implemented in the area of the Palamós submarine canyon by the Spanish government in 2013. This shrimp is the main target species for the bottom otter trawling fleet in the whole Mediterranean area. The fishing grounds for this fishery are located at the canyon head and canyon walls of the Palamós submarine canyon (also named La Fonera) one of the largest canyons in the NW Mediterranean Sea. The knowledge from different sectors was merged through a participatory process that leads to the implementation of this LTMP after 4 years of discussions. Fishermen associations, regional and national administrations, scientists and ONG’s discussed and integrated their knowledge on the view of the implementation of new management strategies, which includes a reduction of 20% of the fishing effort after 5 years of the implementation of the LTMP and also includes yearly temporal fishing closures during winter months (maximum presence of shrimp juveniles) with no public subventions. All these management measures were integrated in order to reach a sustainable exploitation of this important marine living resource and to improve the health of a highly impacted ecosystem such as are the submarine canyons of the NW Mediterranean Sea
