Blue whiting investigations were carried out at the Møre— Helgeland plateau and in the Faero—Shetland areas during the period 8 January to 9 February. Most of the blue whiting were localized in the Faero— Shetland area. The best consentrations were found in the transition layers between the Atlantic water masses and the colder masses below and beside. The fish was here in a prespawning state and was probably mowing towards the spawning locality. An acoustic abundance estimate of the recorded blue whiting in this area gave a total 15 x 10\6 hl.
