This report describes the results from a stratified bottom trawl survey carried out in September/October 1984. The cod stock component was dominated by the 1982 and the 1983- year classes. The former most abundante 1979-yearclass was reduced with 44% compared to the 1983 results. Older haddock were scarce, but good recruitement of the 1983-year class was recorded. The most abundant species in the area were long rough dab and redfish.
