SUMMARY

SUMMARY

IDENTIFICATION

SCIENTIFIC NAME(s)

Reinhardtius hippoglossoides

SPECIES NAME(s)

Greenland halibut, Greenland turbot (US-Canada)

Although scientific advice is provided separately for a northern and a southern component of Greenland halibut within NAFO Subareas 0 and 1 (excluding 1A inshore), there is little to indicate that these are separate stocks (Pomilla et al., 2008). Both advice and TACs are set separately for several stocks in the West Greenland fjords (NAFO Division 1A inshore). These are not covered by this profile.

  • This profile is not currently high on our priority list for development, and we can’t at this time provide an accurate prediction of when it will be developed. To speed up an evaluation of the sustainability status of lower priority fisheries we have initiated a program whereby industry can directly contract SFP-approved analysts to develop a FishSource profile on a fishery. More information on this External Contributor Program is available at https://www.sustainablefish.org/Programs/Science/External-Contributor-Program.

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.
