Along the southern Sicilian coast (Central Mediterranean Sea), Sciacca harbor is the most important landing port for small pelagic fish species (manly anchovies and sardines) [1, 2]. This landing side accounts for about 2/3 of total catch in GFCM-FAO Geographical Sub-Area 16 (South of Sicily), where two operational units (OU) are presently active: purse seiners and pelagic pair trawlers . The GSA16 fleet is composed from 46 units (31 purse seiners and 15 pelagic pair trawlers; Community Fishing Fleet Register, http://ec.europa.eu/fisheries/fleet/index.cfm). In both OUs, anchovy represents the main target species due to the higher market price. Although small pelagic fishes are locally quite appreciated for direct fresh consumption, landings are always totally absorbed by Sciacca transformation (canning) companies’ high demand. Consequently, local consumption of fresh fish is relatively low, also because small pelagic fish are considered “poor” when compared to the wide fish variety in Sciacca market.This study analyzes the links between anchovy landings by pelagic pair trawlers and their market price from daily catch/price data collected in Sciacca harbor throughout the period March 1999 - December 2013.
