The haddock is easily recognizable on the black spot under the foremost dorsal fin. There are several populations of haddock in Norwegian waters. Here you can read about Northeast Arctic haddock and haddock in the North Sea, Skagerrak and Kattegat.


Northeast Arctic haddock

All haddock along the Norwegian coast north of Stad, in the Barents Sea and on the west side of Svalbard belongs to this stock, although new genetic analyses suggest that the stock south of Lofoten are different from the haddock further north.
