The demand for anglerfish (also called monkfish) for human consumption has increased in the last couple of decades because of the delicate consistency of its meat, resulting in increasing pressures on stocks in all Nordic fishing regions. However, the assessment and management of Nordic anglerfish stocks is difficult to conduct due to the lack of fisheries and biological data about the species, such as the spawning behaviour, migratory behaviour and juvenile drift, as well as more knowledge about growth, sexual maturation, diet and natural mortality.
This report reviews the current state of knowledge and research on the biology, ecology, fisheries and stock management of anglerfish in Nordic and European countries, including results and publications from a three-year co-operative research project.
