By Jan Erik Stiansen

Through this report, IMR and PINRO give an overview of their up-to-date knowledge of the Barents Sea ecosystem. In addition, the report includes a general presentation as well as a chapter on the effects of fisheries and pollution on the ecosystem.

The report is a contribution to the stock assessment of the ICES Arctic Fishery Working Group and to the implementation of the Norwegian Management Plan for the Barents Sea.
