Pollack stocks of Bering Sea to increase

Results of research program of fish resources of the Far Eastern seas.

Experts of TINRO-Center (Pacific Fisheries Research Center) reviewed results of five-year research program of fish resources of the Far Eastern seas. Among possible effects of oceanographic conditions changes in the western Bering Sea it was also mentioned assumptions of U.S. scientists that concerned probability of occurrence of smaller generations in years with a relatively "warm" hydrological conditions, as it was in the first half of the 2000’s.
The current situation with the pollack population in the Bering Sea shows an increase in biomass of volumes of pollack to the average level due to appearance of three large generations. The total catch in 2010-2011 in the Western Bering Sea area increased due to the entry of generations of 2006 and 2008 and a broader distribution of pollack in Russian waters. In 2012 a recommended caught of pollack in the Western subzone of Bering Sea is about 395 thousand tons.
With such figures the prospects for pollack in 2012-2013 look quite promising.
