- Fisken og havet (1958- ) 
During May and June 1972 several surveys for fish larvae were carried out in northern Norwegian coastal waters. No larvae of herring was found. In May and June cod larvae were observed in a greater abundance than in the two previous years along the coast from Troms to North Cape. Redfish larvae were found in May and June in an abundance comparable to that in 1971. Capelin larvae were abundant in May and June from Torsvåg to the North Cape area with the highest concentrations in the northernmost part of the area surveyed. The vertical distribution and the length distribution of the capelin larvae indicate a spawning time as in 1971. The spawning grounds were not situated as far south as in previous years.
