In the period 26 August to 11 September a joint Soviet-Norwegian 0-group fish survey was carried out in the Barents Sea (ANON. 1970). During this survey observations were also made on the distribution and abundance of adult capelin and polar cod, especially in the area covered by R. V. «G. O. Sars» (Fig. 1). Echo integrator readings in the investigated area are given in Fig. 3 and 4. Age and length compositions of capelin indicated that the 1967 year-class dominated in the northern part of the Barents Sea. Farther southeast in the investigated area younger fish showed up in the catches (Tables I and 2). Length distributions of polar cod are shown in Table 3.
