Outlook for bottomfish supply from Murmansk-led North Basin in 2007

November 8, 2006 16:32

According to the agreement made at the 35th session of the Mixed Russian-Norwegian Fisheries Commission, in the year 2007 the overall supply of whitefish species from the North Basin can grow thanks to increased haddock and saithe quotas, though the quota of cod, the most valuable whitefish species, has been reduced by 20,200 tonnes.

Quota comparisons of main bottomfish species in the North Basin in the years 2006 and 2007 are given in the table below:
