Description:

Haddock has very, lean sweet meat. It is flaky and similar to cod.

Caught throughout the northern Atlantic Ocean from North America to Europe.

Iceland’s haddock population is decreasing due to natural fluctuations and harvest is being reduced to maintain a sustainable level of fishing. Icelandic fishermen catch haddock with a variety of fishing gear, primarily with trawl, bottom longline and Danish seine (similar to a trawl net but lighter and with less bottom contact). All of these gears, especially trawls, can have large amounts of bycatch, thus fishermen are required to retain everything they catch. Still, some discarding is suspected to occur. Areas closures are used to protect habitat, spawning fish and juvenile fish.
