Abstract

The main characteristics concerning the distribution of two of the most important decapod crustaceans of commercial interest in the Mediterranean Sea, the deep-water rose shrimp, Parapenaeus longirostris, and the Norway lobster, Nephrops norvegicus, are studied in the European Mediterranean waters. The study is based on data collected under the MEDITS trawl surveys from 1994 to 2015 from the Gibraltar Straits to the northeastern Levantine Basin (Cyprus waters). The observed differences can be interpreted as different responses to environmental drivers related to the differing life history traits of the two species. In fact, N. norvegicus is a long-living, benthic burrowing species with low growth and mortality rates, while P. longirostris is an epibenthic, short-living species characterized by higher rates of growth and mortality

Abstract <p>Se investigaron las caracter&iacute;sticas de la distribuci&oacute;n de dos de los crust&aacute;ceos dec&aacute;podos m&aacute;s importantes a nivel comercial del mar Mediterr&aacute;neo, la gamba de altura, Parapenaeus longirostris y la cigala, Nephrops norvegicus, en aguas mediterr&aacute;neas europeas. El presente estudio se basa en datos recopilados en las campa&ntilde;as de pesca experimental de arrastre MEDITS, relizadas de 1994 a 2015 desde el estrecho de Gibraltar hasta la cuenca levantina nororiental (aguas de Chipre). Las diferencias observadas en el patr&oacute;n de distribuci&oacute;n se pueden interpretar como distintas respuestas a factores ambientales relacionados con los diferentes rasgos del ciclo vital de las dos especies. De hecho, N. norvegicus es una especie bent&oacute;nica de vida larga, con bajas tasas de crecimiento y mortalidad, mientras que P. longirostris es una especie epibent&oacute;nica de vida corta, caracterizada por tasas m&aacute;s altas de crecimiento y de mortalidad</p>
