The second meeting of Working Group on Integrated Ecosystem Assessments for the Norwegian Sea (WGINOR) was held in Torshavn, Faroese Islands, 18–22 August and was chaired by Geir Huse, Norway, and Guðmundur J. Óskarsson, Iceland. The total number of participants was 7, representing Norway (4), Iceland (1) and the Faroese (2; Annex 1). In addition another eight Norwegian researchers participated by corre-spondence. The objectives of the meeting were to continue the work on developing an approach to integrated assessment for the Norwegian Sea based on reviewing the work of other groups and literature studies, and undertake an integrated assessment for the Norwegian Sea ecosystem. Presentations were made on the present status of the dif-ferent ecosystem components in the Norwegian Sea, i.e. climate and hydrography, plankton, fish, marine mammals and seabirds based on two recent surveys in the Nor-dic Seas in May and July August 2014 and other annual surveys.
