This figure shows trends for the North-East Atlantic and the Baltic Sea in the status of assessed commercially exploited fish and shellfish stocks between 1947 and 2019.
The shaded areas represent the confidence limits.
For the Mediterranean and Black Seas, no GES threshold is available for reproductive capacity. The dashed horizontal line represents the 2003 level for these regions.
Due to the reduced number of stocks available for the Eastern Mediterranean Sea (only two), the indicators are not shown for this region.
