The stock of sardines off the coast of Portugal, which have been off limits to fishermen since October, has more than doubled to 120,000 tons in 2017.

According to the Portuguese Institute of the Sea and Atmosphere, sardine stocks had risen by 110 percent when compared with the end of 2016. Sardine fishing is currently banned between October and April to help the stocks regenerate and the sea ministry pays the fishermen not to go out in these months.
