The fifth ICES-coordinated acoustic survey on blue whiting in the Norwegian Sea and adjacent waters was conducted from the end of July to the beginning of September 1986. All together eight research vessels from USSR, Norway, Farce Islands, GDR, Iceland and Denmark participated. The area from Skagerrak/Kattegat to the Barents Sea was surveyed, and blue whiting was recorded over major part of the Norwegian Sea, the highest concentrations found more to the south than to the north.
