Overview: There is an important bottom trawl fishery harvesting blue ling undertaken by Faroese and French trawlers. Faroese otterboard trawlers target this species mainly during the spawning season and primarily in their EEZ, and the French trawlers catch blue ling as a bycatch of the fishery for roundnose grenadier, black scabbardfish and deep-sea sharks. The major catches of blue ling by the Faroese and French fleets take place within national jurisdictions, in ICES Areas Vb and VIa, respectively, but some fishing also occurs in international waters (ICES Areas VIb1 or Vb1a in the north of Rockall Bank on the southern slope of the Lousy Bank).
