SUMMARY

SUMMARY

IDENTIFICATION

SCIENTIFIC NAME(s)

Pandalus borealis

SPECIES NAME(s)

Northern prawn, northern shrimp

The Icelandic shrimp fishery consists of three separated stocks: inshore, offshore and Dhorn bank/Denmark Strait populations which differ genetically (Jónsdóttir et al., 1998) and in size, maximum length and length at sexual maturity (Skúladóttir and Pétursson, 1999). Assessment and management measures are performed to each stock. The inshore fishery has been closed in recent years, with the exception of Snæfellsnes area and Arnarfjörður (IMFA, undated 1).

Fisheries

Within FishSource, the term "fishery" is used to indicate each unique combination of a flag country with a fishing gear, operating within a particular management unit, upon a resource. That resource may have a known biological stock structure and/or may be assessed at another level for practical or jurisdictional reasons. A fishery is the finest scale of resolution captured in FishSource profiles, as it is generally the scale at which sustainability can most fairly and practically be evaluated.
