Haddock – U.S. Georges Bank
In the U.S. Georges Bank, Haddock have recovered to have a healthy abundance level, after being depleted from many years of overfishing.
Most Haddock are caught using habitat-damaging bottom trawls but also with bottom longlines and handlines. All fishing methods catch several species in addition to Haddock and some of these species are depleted or at low abundances.
Management of Haddock has improved over the last decade.
