Data are shown for four different seas and three sections of the North Sea, depending on mean annual SST



Additional information

The index is calculated from annual catches of sole and plaice in these areas and is the ratio sole/ (sole+plaice). In all seas SST is correlated with the SST anomaly in the North Sea shown in Figure 5.21, i.e. there has been a steadily increasing trend in the past 25 years.
Geographical coverage note: North Sea
