The fish / fishery:

Greenland halibut is an Arctic species that prefers cold waters . It lives at a depth from 200-2000 meters , but is rarely found shallower than 400 meters. Greenland halibut lives both at the bottom and in the pelagic layers . The spawning grounds are found mainly in the upper part of the continental shelf from Vesterålen to Bjørnøya / Bear Island. Fishing for Greenland halibut takes place along the edge of the shelf north of Prins Karls Forland . The most common fishing gear is bottom trawl , longlines and nets.

Nutritional information:
