COMMON NAMES

Redfish

Two units are assumed in the NE Atlantic region for assessment and management purposes: the first off Iceland and Faroes grounds, West of Scotland, North of Azores, East of Greenland including Subareas 5, 6, 12, and 14 (ICES, 2014); and the second in Barents Sea and Norwegian Sea covering Subareas 1 and 2 (ICES, 2014).

The previous scientific name Sebastes marinus has been determined to have been misapplied and has been replaced by S. norvegicus to identify golden redfish (Froese and Pauly 2018).
