Author(s): Abelló P, Martín P

Abstract

The stomatopod crustacean Squilla mantis has high local fishing importance off the Ebro delta (northwestern Mediterranean). Present annual catches are around 700 t. It is fished throughout the year and catches have a marked seasonality, with highest values occurring in winter and lowest in April–July. Trawling effort is approximately constant throughout the year. Maximum abundances occur shallower than 60 m depth.
