Haddock – U.S.
Haddock is a bottom-living fish species found throughout the North Atlantic Ocean. In the U.S., Haddock is at a healthy abundance and is fished at a sustainable level.
Most Haddock are caught using habitat-damaging bottom trawls but also with bottom longlines and handlines. All fishing methods catch some species of concern, including depleted Atlantic Cod. Management of Haddock fisheries has improved over the last decade.
