Geographical stratification by region Geographical stratification by region

The Geographical stratification by region table provides the match between Supra regions, Regions and Sub-regions/fishing grounds.

Note that the geographical stratification in the EU-MAP has been redefined.

Apart from more disaggregated Regions in the North Atlantic (NAO), the CECAF areas around Madera and the Canary Islands are now included in the Supra region of the North Atlantic (now termed NAO, previously termed Area 27 in the DCF/AER). Under the DCF, these areas were included in OFR (Other regions). The differences between the DCF and EU-MAP are highlighted in the tables below.

Geographical stratification by region as set out in Table 5C of Commission Decision (EU) 2016/1251 (EU-MAP).
