Does anyone have information about a newly developing deep water (800-2,000
m) bottom longline fishery developing on the Mid Atlantic Ridge south of the
Iceland EEZ and the Azores? There was an interesting article in the July
edition of Fishing News International. I was wondering if anyone is aware of
any stock assessment work that ICES or others may have conducted on the
deepwater finfish fauna in this area??
