Article 4 of Council Regulation (EC) No 104/2000 of 17 December 1999 establishing the Common Organisation of the Market in the field of fishery and aquaculture products provides that the Member States shall ensure that the conditions laid down in Article 4 of Regulation (EC) No 104/2000 are not complied with. Member States shall establish and publish the list of trade names admitted to their territory at least for all species listed in Annexes I to IV to this Regulation. This list shall indicate in respect of each species the scientific name, the name in the official language (s) of the Member State and, where appropriate, the name (s) accepted or tolerated at local or regional level.

Member States of the European Union shall send the Commission the list of registered trade names.

The constant marketing of new species in our market makes it necessary to update the single Annex to the Resolution of 22 March 2011, of the General Secretariat of the Sea, establishing and publishing the list of trade names of fishery and aquaculture species admitted in Spain (hereinafter listed), to include the last accepted trade names.

This update aims to establish and publicise the new updated list of trade names, and has been approved within the Commission of Trade Denominations of Fisheries Species in Spain set up by Order PRE/634/2004 of 5 March 2004.

For all the above, this General Secretariat of Fisheries resolves:


1. Update the list of commercial denominations admitted in the Spanish territory for fishery products.

2. The trade name shall be deemed to be an official name throughout the national territory. However, the different meanings of the commercial names listed and which have been recognized by the Autonomous Communities will be complementary to those.

3. The scientific names of certain species have been updated in accordance with the International Code of Scientific Classification, keeping in brackets the scientific name of the genus still in use.


Give advertising to the listing by publishing it in the "Official State Gazette" as a single annex to this Resolution.


Repeal the Resolution of 22 March 2011, of the General Secretariat of the Sea, establishing and publishing the list of commercial names of fish and aquaculture species admitted in Spain.

Madrid, May 28, 2012. -Secretary General of Fisheries Carlos Dominguez Diaz.
