Results from joint international mackerel survey confirm abundant mackerel within the Icelandic EEZ

This week fisheries scientists from the Faroe Islands, Iceland and Norway met to analyse and coordinate results from a joint mackerel survey that was conducted earlier this summer. As earlier reported on the MRI website, the investigations were carried out onboard four vessels from Iceland, the Faroes and Norway during the period 1 July through 10 August 2012.
