SAM: Stock structure of the Atlantic Mackerel (Scomber scombrus L.). An ecological-time scale approach to solve stock(s) management

In collaboration with Matís and many other Nordic and Canadian partners, the Marine Research Institute (MRI) obtained a financial support from The Fisheries Research Fund of the Icelandic Ministry of Fisheries and Agriculture (started 2011), NORA (started 2012) and the Faroese Research Council (started 2012) to study the Atlantic mackerel. The project started in 2011 and will last until December 2014. This Nordic collaboration network brings together representatives from the mackerel industry and scientists of different fields of expertise from relevant Nordic countries (Norway, Faroe Islands, Iceland, Greenland, Canada and USA). Combining genetic studies, with information on catch location and biology, this project (Stock structure of Atlantic Mackerel, called SAM) intends to give a clearer picture of the various stocks and shed light on the stock mixture in the North Atlantic.
