In 2015, Norway surveyed the Norwegian Sea and part of the Jan Mayen area by ship. These areas will also be re-surveyed in 2016 to ensure full coverage of both areas. The abundance estimates generated by these surveys will be combined with the estimates from the other Norwegian 'mosaic' surveys to get an estimate for the total areas that are surveyed by the Norwegians.
The survey was conducted on the vessel Fisktrans, and took take place from 22 June to 30 August.
