Capelin in the Iceland/Greenland/Jan Mayen Area
Capelin in the Iceland East Greenland-Jan Mayen area is considered to be a unique stock (ICES, 2015) for assessment purposes. Genetic studies were almost solely focused on large-scale differentiation between populations (Reiss et al., 2009). Some microsatellite data within the Northeast Atlantic were less conclusive in differentiating populations (Praebel et al., 2008).
