    This booklet presents the activities and achievements of the BlackSea4Fish project in 2020–2021. Established in 2016 and implemented by the GFCM, the BlackSea4Fish project contributes to the sustainable management of Black Sea fisheries by providing scientific and technical support to the countries in the region. In 2020 and 2021, BlackSea4Fish focused on increasing scientific knowledge to support fisheries management by improving data collection and scientific advice for priority species through scientific surveys, enhanced stock assessments and capacity building. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, BlackSea4Fish meetings and joint field activities had to be put on hold in 2020 and were replaced by online trainings, with select activities organized at only the national level. In 2021, activities at the national level and online work continued, while meetings resumed in virtual modality. The project organized three data preparation meetings, four technical meetings, two technical documents, five scientific surveys, two selectivity studies, one scientific database, and eight online presentation series.

    This leaflet presents a brief overview of the BlackSea4Fish project as well as its objectives, outputs and main achievements between 2018 and 2019. The BlackSea4Fish project was established in 2016 in order to contribute to the sustainable management of Black Sea fisheries by providing scientific and technical support to the work of the General Fisheries Commission for the Mediterranean (GFCM) in the region and coordinating priority activities of the GFCM Subregional Group on Stock Assessment in the Black Sea (SGSABS) and the Working Group on the Black Sea (WGBS). Between 2018 and 2019, the BlackSea4Fish project focused on increasing scientific knowledge to support fisheries management, by improving data collection and scientific advice for priority species through scientific surveys and enhanced stock assessment, as well as through capacity-building. It also launched activities in specific Black Sea countries in response to the needs identified over the years by the SGSABS and in line with the recommendations and workplan of the WGBS.

    This 2023 special edition of the GFCM’s flagship publication, The State of Mediterranean and Black Sea Fisheries, updates statistics and figures on the status and management of fisheries in the region and includes, for the first time, an overview of regional indicators on the aquaculture sector in Mediterranean and Black Sea countries. It aims to deliver useful and reliable data to a wide audience as an essential source of information on fisheries and aquaculture in the region and a key tool to support decision-making and monitor progress towards the goals set by the GFCM. The fifth instalment of its series, this publication covers topics of regional importance in the fisheries and aquaculture sectors over the course of seven chapters. Fleet status and capture fisheries production are the focus of the first two chapters, which include figures on fishing capacity and landings by country and fleet segment. Chapter three captures the human dimension behind the region’s fisheries through socioeconomic data on revenue and employment. In chapter four, information on discards is updated and categorized for the main fishing fleets in each GFCM subregion, along with details on the species that make up this important component of the catch. Chapter five reviews the status of fisheries resources, especially regional trends and trends in priority species, while chapter seven summarizes relevant existing and new adopted measures towards the sustainability of key fisheries and the protection of vulnerable ecosystems. Aquaculture is included in this edition for the first time, described in terms of volume and socioeconomic indicators in chapter six.
