1- Biological diversity is maintained.
6 - Sea-floor integrity is at a level that ensures that the structure and functions of the ecosystems.
8 - Concentrations of contaminants are at levels not giving rise to pollution effects.
9 - Contaminants in fish and other seafood for human consumption do not exceed levels established by Community legislation or other relevant standards.
10 - Properties and quantities of marine litter do not cause harm to the coastal and marine environment.
▶ Norwegian/Russian ecosystem survey in the Barents SeaMain goal
▶ Norwegian/Russian ecosystem survey in the Barents SeaMain focus areas
Joint Norwegian-Russian Ecosystem survey in the Barents Sea during autumn aimed to obtain capelin, herring, polar cod, blue whiting, shrimps and 0-group abundance estimates/ indices, and monitor the status of some ecosystem components and processes
August-September: largest ice-free area and minimal stocks migration. Timing is optimal to reflect feeding success and for assessing pelagic fish stocks for assessment and fisheries management advice.
Helmar Hanssen during autumn
highly functional collaboration between Norway and Russia
comprehensive spatial coverage and adequate resolution
the results/output covers important assessment tasks and some ecosystem components and processes
multidisciplinary focus increases the scientific knowledge about the ecosystem
