Coastal consentrations of 0-group NE-Artic cod. [HELP 24]
MetadataShow full item record
Investigations in 1987 and 1988 aimed at catching and utilizating wild cod fry as seed fish in commercial aquaculture have demonstrated that, at the time of year when the main brood of the year is drifting pelagically offshore, 0-group NE-Arctic cod are also concentrated in shallow waters along the outer exposed coast of Finnmark. This segment of the new yerclass, which has hitherto been asssumed insignificant, and, therefore neglected in 0-group assessments, may in years with weak year classes represent as much as 10% of the annua1 brood.
