About

Rockall haddock is the same species (Melanogrammus aeglefinus) as the North Sea haddock targeted by the SFSAG, but a different population. The fishery entered assessment in early 2017.

Haddock is the most important demersal whitefish species to Scottish fishermen. Over 27,000 tonnes of haddock were landed into Scotland by Scottish vessels in 2015 worth £37 million. Almost 4,000 tonnes of this is Rockall haddock.
