- Fisken og havet (1958- ) 
On a cruise with R.V."G.O.Sars" from 24 April to 9 May dense concentrations of blue whiting were found between the Faroes and Shetland and in the Norwegian Deep east of Tampen. Further north the fish were scattered. A preliminary estimate of the blue whiting population within the area covered, was about 2 • 10/10 fish. The dense concentrations of blue whiting between the Faroes and Shetland were on a later cruise from 28 May to 31 May found further north and northwest. A comparison of the maturity stages of the fish caught in the different areas indicated that this movement was a migration from the spawning area.
