Ling and tusk are targeted along the Norwegian continental slope from the Lofoten islands and southwards in the Norwegian Sea. The fishery is also conducted in the North sea in both Norwegian and EU waters, and continues westwards along the slope all the way to west of Ireland.

The lumpfish part of this fishery takes place in the North East Arctic and North East Atlantic, close to the Norwegian shoreline in the three most northern counties of Norway: Nordland, Troms and Finnmark. The end product is caviar. 

The fishery entered assessment in 2016.
