SUMMARY

SUMMARY

IDENTIFICATION

SCIENTIFIC NAME(s)

Gadus morhua

SPECIES NAME(s)

Atlantic cod

COMMON NAMES

West Greenland fjords cod, Greenland cod

The inshore Greenland cod component was assessed together with the offshore cod stocks prior to 2012. However, multiple stocks are thought to contribute to the fishery in this region: south and east Greenland cod, offshore west Greenland cod and Icelandic cod, and methods for separating catch origin are being developed (ICES, 2015).

RECOMMENDATIONS

CATCHERS & REGULATORS

1. Review the FishSource profile and publish or share online relevant missing information in your possession or those accessible to you.
2. Encourage scientists to share their studies/publications with FishSource by commenting on the profile and uploading a hyperlink to the document.
3. Work with scientists on the collection of data and make them accessible online.
4. Encourage the institutionalization of data collection and publication.

RETAILERS & SUPPLY CHAIN

1. Advise your suppliers that currently the FishSource profile reflects that there is not enough information publicly available on this fishery and you are unable to make an accurate determination of the sustainability status. Request that they advise the relevant authorities of the situation and that efforts need to be made to collect and publish data and disclose data sources to FishSource to better inform buying decisions.

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.
