Updated Species List for By-Catch Caught in ICCAT Fisheries
The number of species being reported to the ICCAT secretariat is increasing annually due to an increased focus on by-caught species. As such it has been necessary to revise and update the ICCAT list of species to accommodate these changes as well as to take into account updated taxonomic revisions. This document provides an updated list of by-catch species along with associated reporting codes. It is the intention of the ICCAT Secretariat for the Standing Committee on Ecosystems and By-catch to discuss the revisions and approve and official list for use in the ICCAT statistical databases.
