Overview: In the 1973s, a fishery for roundnose grenadier (Coryphaenoides rupestris) was developed by the former USSR, when aggregations of roundnose grenadier (Coryphaenoides rupestris) over the northern part of the MAR were discovered. Initial catches peaked at about 30 000 tonnes per annum and the fishery continued with varying intensity until the early 1990s. (Troyanovsky and Lisovsky, 1995) This fishery was mainly conducted using pelagic trawls, but also with bottom gear (Clark et al., 2007).
