IDENTIFYING METIERS AND SPATIO-TEMPORAL DYNAMICS OF SMALL-SCALE FISHERIES IN THE FUTURE MPA OF "TAZA" (ALGERIA, SW MEDITERRANEAN)

Abstract : Creation of a marine protected area (MPA) in "Taza" (Gulf of Béjaia, Algeria-SW Mediterranean) was first proposed by the staff of Taza National Park in 2000. The main objective of this work was to identify the métiers practiced by artisanal fishermen in this area through direct observation method of daily landings. It is found that among the five métiers characterized by target species, gear type, fishing grounds, and fishing seasons, two métiers ("Mullus surmuletus trammel net" and "Sparids monofilament gillnet") are practiced throughout the year, while the remaining three ("Sarda sarda driftnet", "Merluccius merluccius set gillnet", and "Pagellus set gillnet") are specific to a determined period of the year. Moreover, the spatial distribution of fishing effort shows that the fishing grounds are mainly at depths <100 m.
