    If pesca de altura es la pesca en alta mar, deep sea fishing. I would agree with Juri on coastal fishing or fishing in coastal waters. Auction may work, or possibly, large scale fish sales, or wholesale fish market ... But I don´t know what pesca de bajura would refer to, maybe you could explain your terminology

    Pesca de bajura.1. f. La que se efectúa por pequeñas embarcaciones en las proximidades de la costa.

    pesca de bajura o altura:

    inshore or high seas fishing

    "Inshore" se refiere a la pesca cercana a la costa. "High seas fishing" no es lo mismo que "deep sea fishing". "High seas" se refiere al lugar de la pesca, lejano de la costa/tierra; "deep sea fishing" a la profundidad de la pesca.

    I checked "deep sea", it is alta mar.
