Description 
Summary

The impact of commercial fishing on turbot population, i.e. changes in the spawning school structure, juveniles and the CPUE index, was studied. In 1997 the marking of turbot started. Repeated catch of marked turbot would allow to establish the age more exactly and also would give more information about migration.
