SwAm publishes report on the status of our commercially most important fish species

Today, the Swedish Agency for Marine and Water management published the report Fish and shellfish stock in sea and freshwater 2018, a compilation of the condition of our commercially most important fish and shellfish species.

The eastern Baltic cod is still in poor condition, a stock consisting of small and undersized fish. The scientists also see a continued negative development for the coast's important predatory fish pike and pikeperch in the Baltic Proper.

The content of the report aims to serve as a basis for fish regulation and is an important tool for achieving the environmental quality objectives.
