• Evaluation of sampling strategies for age determination of cod (Gadus morhua) sampled at the North Sea International Bottom Trawl Survey 

      Jourdain, Natoya; Breivik, Olav Nikolai; Fuglebakk, Edvin; Aanes, Sondre; Vølstad, Jon Helge (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2020)
      The North Sea cod stock assessment is based on indices of abundance-at-age from fishery-independent bottom trawl surveys. The age structure of the catch is estimated by sampling fish for otoliths collection in a length-stratified ...

      The REDUS project (2016-2020) has been a strategic project at the Institute of Marine Research (IMR) aimed at quantifying and reducing the uncertainty in data-rich and age-structured stock assessments (e.g., cod, herring, ...
    • Fish Investigations in the Barents Sea Winter 2019 

      Mehl, Sigbjørn; Wenneck, Thomas de Lange; Aglen, Asgeir; Fuglebakk, Edvin; Gjøsæter, Harald; Godiksen, Jane Aanestad; Seim, Silje Elisabeth; Staby, Arved; Bogstad, Bjarte; Russkikh, Alexey A.; Fomin, Konstantin (IMR/PINRO Joint Report Series;, Research report, 2019)
      The Institute of Marine Research (IMR), Bergen, has performed acoustic measurements of demersal fish in the Barents Sea since 1976. Since 1981 a bottom trawl survey has been combined with the acoustic survey. Typical effort ...

      Fall, Johanna Jennifer Elisabeth; Wenneck, Thomas de Lange; Bogstad, Bjarte; Fuglebakk, Edvin; Gjøsæter, Harald; Seim, Silje Elisabeth; Skage, Malin Lie; Staby, Arved; Tranang, Caroline Aas; Windsland, Kristin; Russkikh, Alexey A.; Fomin, Konstantin (IMR/PINRO Joint Report Series;, Research report, 2020)
      This report presents the main results from the surveys in January-March 2020. The surveys were performed with the Norwegian research vessels “Helmer Hanssen” and “Johan Hjort” and the Russian research vessel “Vilnyus”. ...
    • Maturation in the Barents Sea capelin – Contrasting length- and gonad-based metrics 

      Jourdain, Natoya; Fuglebakk, Edvin; Subbey, Samuel (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2021)
      It is assumed that maturation in the Barents Sea capelin is length-dependent, and that fish of at least 14 cm will potentially spawn. Current assessment and management models for the stock are based on this assumption of ...
    • A “snowcrab-bag” attached to the fishing line of Campelen 1800 research trawl : Does it affect the catch rates and species composition in the cod end? 

      Aglen, Asgeir; Pavlenkov, Alexander; Hjelset, Ann Merete; Fuglebakk, Edvin; Engås, Arill (IMR/PINRO Joint Report Series;, Research report, 2019)
      For monitoring abundance and distribution of snow crab in the Barents Sea, data from the bottom trawl surveys in winter (February) and in autumn (August-September) are used. The data collected in the autumn survey is ...
    • StoX: An open source software for marine survey analyses 

      Johnsen, Espen; Totland, Atle; Skålevik, Åsmund; Holmin, Arne Johannes; Dingsør, Gjert Endre; Fuglebakk, Edvin; Handegard, Nils Olav (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2019)
      Scientists across the globe conduct survey programs to monitor and characterize abundance, population structure, biodiversity and geographical distributions. To assess the state of marine fish and zooplankton, population ...
