ICES has recommended that there should be no fishing for capelin in the Barents Sea next year. In compliance with the Norwegian-Russian harvesting regulation, the Norway-Russia Fisheries Commission will set a zero quota.
Acoustic survey work in the Barents Sea is the key tool for evaluating the state of the stock, and researchers at the Institute of Marine Research estimate a spawning stock of capelin at 545,000 tonnes. Taking into account predation by cod and other species, as well as other factors, the researchers have to forecast how much will be left by 1st April – and for next year the outlook isn’t seen as strong enough to support a fishery.

Aller Aqua has discovered a new way of feeding fry which improves growth and reduces early mortality and deformities.
The importance of polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFA) in the nutrition of larvae and fry is well-documented and PUFAs have been a focus area when developing fry feeds at Aller Aqua.
Phospholipids, derived from krill oil or purified fish oil, are essential for maintaining membrane homeostasis, gene expression, hormone synthesis, neurological development and inflammatory response and research has shown that PUFAs presented as phospholipids are digested and metabolised more efficiently than PUFAs in other lipid classes.
