Norwegian haddock stock is in good condition and sustainably managed.
The Norwegian Haddock fishery mainly targets the North-East Arctic Haddock stock. ICES classifies the stock as having full reproductive capacity and being harvested sustainably. The observed recruitment of North-East Arctic haddock is good, and the stock is expected to remain at a high level in the next years.
Norway has two management plans for haddock. One for the north-east arctic haddock and one that has been agreed by the Joint Norwegian-Russian fishery commission and has been in force since 2004. A haddock management plan for the North Sea has been agreed by The European Union (EU) and Norway in 2008.
