IMR/PINRO no 3-2011: Survey Report from the Joint Norwegian/Russian Ecosystem Survey in the Barents Sea, August–October 2011

Sammendrag

In 2011, a nearly total coverage of the Barents Sea was obtained, apart from small areas south and north of the “Loophole”, where the jurisdiction changed in July 2011 in accordance with the new Norwegian-Russian division line. As there were doubts about exactly where the Russian and Norwegian vessels could operate, none of the vessels could enter these areas. This report was prepared at a joint meeting in Murmansk, Russia, 10-13 October, followed by inputs during November and December 2011.
