|Abstract:||Throughout the northern Mediterranean Sea, long-term fishers' perceptions were investigated, covering a period back to the 1940's. The objective was to quantify discarding of commercial species in the bottom trawl fisheries, and their evolution over time. It was concluded that during the past 70 years, discarding gradually increased in the Mediterranean trawl fisheries. This has been accompanied by a shift in the species composition of unwanted catches. Historically, fisheries discarding practices were mostly driven by market demand and a shift in fishing strategies rather than legal constraints.|
