Original versionThis report is not to be quoted without prior consultation with the General Secretary.
In 1975-77, 18 942 saithe were tagged on the Norwegian coast, a continuation of a tagging program which started in 1972. The results confirm the migration pattern indicated by experiments in 1970-74. There is a substantial migration of immature saithe to the North Sea from the Norwegian coast between 62° and 66°N, and this coastal area seems to a large extent to serve as a nursery area for the North Sea stock of saithe.
