- Fisken og havet (1958- ) 
In the period 14 August to 11 September capelin research was carried out in the area Jan Mayen—Denmark Strait. The main aim was to investigate the possibilities for ring seine fishing in this area. Most of the fish echos were recorded at depths of 100 to 200 m were the temperature varied between 0º and 4º C. At some few localities records were made in the upper layers from 5 m—40 m where the temperature also was from 0º to 4ºC. One ring seine catch of about 200 hl small capelin was taken in the position 67º46'N and 21º25'W. The average length of the capelin was 10.55 cm. It is concluded that ring seine fishing for capelin is not worth-while at this time of the year in the area investigated.
