The original marine fisheries catch reconstructions for all countries and territories (or islands) surrounding the Mediterranean Sea for the years 1950 to 2010 were here updated for most entities to 2015, 2016 or 2017, then carried forward to 2018 using statistics from the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO). The exceptions are Greece, Spain (mainland), and Turkey, whose reconstruction updates are documented elsewhere in this report. The methods applied for each catch reconstruction update, mainly derived from the previous catch reconstruction(s) for the country or territory in question, are presented in specific sections, jointly with any additional dataset. The resulting catch trends for the Mediterranean Sea as a whole are briefly discussed.
