Investigation of mackerel predation on herring larvae on the Norwegian coastal shelf. (Rapport fra Havforskningen nr. 6 - 2014)

Atlantic mackerel is an opportunistic feeder and with the recent expansion in distribution area during feeding, its potential predatory impact on herring larvae has been debated. In the present study we investigate the overlap in distribution between mackerel and herring larvae along the Norwegian coastal shelf with the main focus between ca. 66°N to 69°N in the beginning of June 2013, and investigate the mackerel prey consumption. A zig-zag transect with stations for sampling mackerel and herring larvae each 20 n.mile was conducted twice.
