  • Description:
    "The haddock, Melanogrammus aeglefinus, is a demersal gadid found on both sides of the North Atlantic (Figure 1). In the northwest Atlantic, haddock are distributed from Cape May, New Jersey to the Strait of Belle Isle, Newfoundland (Klein-MacPhee 2002). Six haddock stocks have been identified in the northwest Atlantic from Newfoundland to Georges Bank (Begg 1998). There are two haddock stocks in U.S. waters: Georges Bank and Gulf of Maine. U.S. haddock fisheries are managed by the New England Fishery Management Council under the Northeast Multispecies Fishery Management Plan (NEFMC 1993). The Georges Bank haddock stock is also a transboundary resource, which is co-managed with Canada. This Essential Fish Habitat Source Document provides up-to-date information on the life history characteristics and habitat requirements of the Georges Bank and Gulf of Maine haddock stocks"--Intro.
