    Deep-Sea Sponges of the Mediterranean Sea (poster) 2017
    Also available in:
    No results found.

    This poster includes a selection of important deep-sea sponge taxa known to occur in the Mediterranean Sea. Each taxon is described using on-deck, laboratory or underwater photos, and information on their morphology, characteristics, texture, important identification characters, colour, size and depth of occurrence are also provided. A section on similar looking invertebrates is also included. The objective of this poster is to assist fishers and fishery observers in the identification of these poorly known species at sea. It is also aimed at generating awareness and understanding of these deep-sea vunerable organisms.

    Report of the Workshop on Deep-sea Species Identification, Rome, 2- 4 December 2009. 2011

    A Workshop on Deep-sea Species Identification was organized by FAO in Rome, Italy, from 2 to 4 December, 2009. The meeting was organized in response to the need for a strategy for the development of appropriate deep-sea species identification tools for fishery purposes, in particular, to address the broadened requirements for reporting on not only target species, but also associated species following recent international developments with respect to fisheries management guidance and biodiversity conservation. The Workshop included an overview of relevant FAO programmes, followed by presentations and discussions on current knowledge and key issues to be addressed to improve knowledge of vulnerable deep-sea species groups such as chondrichthyes, corals, sponges and other selected deep-sea groups through the development of a database and appropriate identification tools to facilitate reporting on these species groups by fishery operators. Part 1 of the report includes these discussions as well as the conclusions and recommendations agreed upon by participants. Harmonised versions of the three background documents drafted for the Workshop are included in Part 2 of the report.
