AbstractThis study presents a general evaluation of the Ecosystem Approach to Fisheries (hereinafter EAF) in the Mediterranean Sea, a general assessment of the Marine Protected Areas (hereinafter MPAs) in the basin and the Monitoring Control and Surveillance of vessels (hereinafter MCS). The study of the EAF and the MPAs has been done from local scientific surveys, fishing and fleets statistics, published data on EAF analysis, and questionnaires to regional and international bodies. The MCS, with satellite technology, was applied to the whole Mediterranean as a preliminary study, in order to achieve a global state of the maritime traffic and presence of fishing vessels from 1stMay 2015 to 1stMay 2016. In addition, taking into account the trawler closed area and the MPAs, an example of a case study in the Alboran Island was chosen to specifically analyse the level of compliance of the fishing rules in one restricted area. Furthermore, a different technology for the artisanal fishery and other fleets can be applied, since this fleet does not have satellite technology on its ships. The results have been compared with several management scenarios previously analysed.Results highlighted that the holistic study in the Mediterranean make possible a better understanding of generating important information tobe used in fisheries management. The historical data is essential in order to apply good management. The MCS applied in the Mediterranean and the Alboran MPA shows an example of the level of compliance, as well as the pressureof maritime traffic in the Mediterranean Sea
