Original versionThis report is not to be quoted without prior consultation with the General Secretary.
Acoustic surveys on northeast Arctic spawning cod were carried out in Lofoten and off Møre in March-April 1984 in order to estimate the stock size and structure. Within the investigated areas the total number at spawning cod was estimated to about 40 million specimens. This was a reduction of 25-30 percent as compared to the results in 1983 when a total of 56 million specimens was estimated within the same areas. Particularly in the Møre area spawning cod was far less abundant in 1984 than in 1983.
