During September-October 1973 observations were made on distribution and abundance of capelin and polar cod in the Barents Sea. The major part of the capelin stock was found north of 78º N, and the distribution pattern was similar to that observed during autumn 1971. Only 16 per cent of the stock was maturing, and it was concluded that the spawning stock during the winter of 1974 will be less than in the previous years. The 1971 and 1972 year-classes are however both rich, and this will lead to an increase in the spawning stocks of 1975 and 1976. The abundance of Polar cod within the area of investigation was much lower than in the two previous years.
