NAFO Div. 3LNO
The Spanish Institute of Oceanography carried out in 2016 two bottom trawl surveys in the NAFO Regulatory Area in Division 3NO and 3L during the months of June and August respectively. The results on Northern shrimp (Pandalus borealis) are presented and compared with those from previous surveys from the same series. As recent years in 2016 the shrimp catch (0.385 kg.) and estimated biomass (2.36 t.) in Divisions 3NO remain between the lowest of the series, confirming the decrease of shrimp importance from 2004. Northern shrimp catches in 3L Division have declined from 2009; however, in 2016 a significant increased of the catches was noted (3418 kg.). The biomass estimated in 2016 (20125.2 t.) remain between the lowest values in the historical series.
