On the migrations of the cod in the Skagerak shown by tagging experiments in the period 1954-1965
MetadataShow full item record
1. A total of 1,244 cod was tagged from 1954 to 1965. The recapture percentage from the different tagging years varied between 24.9 aid 35.6 with a mean of 29.5 for the whole period. 2. No cod has been recaptured on the Norwegian Skagerak coast, indicating that there is no connection between the cod populations on the Danish and Norwegian side of the Skagerak. 3. The recaptures in the Kattegat have been very small (15 individuals). The migration into the eastern part of the North Sea somewhat greater (43 individuals), and they were mainly caught in the first part of the year. 4. One cod has been recaptured on the Fyllas Bank on the West Greenland 34 months after the tagging, and one on the Norwegian Helgeland coast after 49 months at sea.
