Profile updated on 4 March 2021
Icelandic haddock is geographically segregated from other haddock stocks (ICES 2019). Within its range, the stock’s geographic distribution has been shifting northward (MFRI 2020). Genetic studies indicate a significant differentiation of the Icelandic haddock stock (Giӕver and Forthun, 1999; ICES, 2014c), but similarities to populations off the Norwegian coast at Lofoten south and Nordland (Berg et al. 2020). Information on the metapopulation structure of the Icelandic haddock stock is limited (ICES 2019).
