Spatial variation in fecundity of Norwegian coastal cod, Gadus morhua (Linnaeus), along the coast of Norway


Fecundity of Norwegian coastal cod (NCC) was estimated at several locations along the coast of Norway. There was no significant difference in carcass weight, liver weight or potential fecundity (Fp) between Lofoten and Verrabotn (Northern region) or between B?mlo and Langesund (Southern region). Fish caught in the Northern region had a higher liver weight and potential fecundity than fish caught in the Southern region. ?
