The figure shows the proportion of commercial European fish landings assessed per regional sea distinguishing between assessed and non-assessed stocks. For the assessed stocks a distinction is made between (i) landings of stocks for which information is available to determine Good Environmental Status (GES) for Fishing mortality (F) and/or Spawning Stock Biomass (SSB) and (ii) landings for stocks for which information is not available to determine GES for F and/or SSB.

Additional information

• Based on data available in the period 2016-2020; data for the Northeast Atlantic and Baltic Sea are mainly from 2019; data for the Mediterranean and Black seas are mainly from 2018 (not all stocks have annual assessments).
• A distinction is made between (1) landings for assessed stocks for which adequate information is available to determine GES for F and SSB, (2) landings for assessed stocks for which insufficient information is available to determine GES for F or SSB, and (3) assessed stocks for which the available information on both F and SSB is insufficient to determine GES. For further information, see the Methodology section, on how this distinction is made, and European Commission Decision 2017/848/EU on criteria and methodological standards on GES of marine waters.
