The Workshop on Stock Identification of North Sea Cod (WKNSCodID) reviewed information on population structure of Atlantic cod (Gadus morhua) in the North Sea and adjacent waters to recommend the most plausible scenario of population structure for stock assessment and fishery management advice.
The review considered geographic variation and movements of cod life stages inferred from genetic analyses, scientific surveys, fishery data, tagging, life-history, distribution of eggs and larvae, otolith microchemistry and shape, and parasites.
