Status report from MRI now in English

The Marine Research Institute publishes a report on the state of marine stocks in Icelandic waters annually.  The report for the fishing year 2011/2012 and prospects for the quota year 2012/2013 is now available online in English.

This report provides customary information about the state of specific stocks, development of fisheries, stock size and recommended maximum catch levels, which takes into account their estimated productivity and conservation issues where necessary. Also, there is a short chapter about important environmental factors and their respective effects on marine life.
