The Barents Sea is a marine shelf ecosystem more than 4 times bigger than mainland Norway. Barents Sea is the home of some of the largest fish stocks in the world, but there are more fish in the sea. Since the mid 2000’s, due to reduced ice cover, the northern Barents Sea has been open to exploration in summer. A large scaled survey (the Joint IMR PINRO Barents Sea Ecosystem Survey), run jointly by Norway and Russia, have monitored the whole of the Barents Sea every year since 2004, including the northern, previously ice covered part. Here I will present some of our findings on the Barents Sea fish fauna.
