An invasive species accidentally introduced into the Barents Sea in the mid 1990's, exponentially increasing in number (FRAM - High North Research Centre for Climate and the Environment 2016) and now supporting a growing Russian pot fishery (Agnalt et al. 2011) , and prompting development of fishing resource in Norway/Svalbard also (AS 2016).
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.
