The current common fisheries policy allows a better integration of requirements for environmental protection in fisheries management, which contributes directly to achieving the objectives of the "Birds" and "Habitats". Marine Natura 2000 sites designated as Special Areas of Conservation (approved by the European Commission Decision 2009/92/EC), which were the subject of this study are: ROSCI 0269 Vama Veche - 2 Mai, ROSCI 0273 Marine area from Capul Tuzla; ROSCI 0237 Submarine structures methanogenic Sf. Gheorghe. In order to achieve a complete inventory of the species as present in the marine Natura 2000 sites under study were organized and conducted research expeditions at sea and along the coast, in the SCI survey sites to make fishing and levies biological samples, measurements and sampling. Ichthyofauna has been used to study samples extracted randomized study, which is part of the general population, but provides sufficient information to characterize the entire population. Fisheries science has shown the greatest diversity in ROSCI 0269 Vama Veche - 2 Mai (20 species) and lowest in ROSCI 0273 Marine area from Capul Tuzla (2 species). These data are considered preliminary, future research will illustrate the correct situation in all sites.
