Mackerel winter spawning surveys 2014 - 2015 December survey

Research output: Book/ReportReportProfessional

Abstract

In recent years the western Atlantic mackerel stock has expanded, resulting in an earlier start of spawning and earlier occurrence of the mackerel peak of spawning. In 2014 and 2015, mackerel winter spawning surveys have been conducted to determine the start date of mackerel spawning in the western area. During the surveys both plankton sampling and trawl hauls are carried out. This report contains the results of the December 2014 survey, carried out on board the Nida.
