Abstract: In January 1982, the Fisheries and Survey Branch commenced a deep-water bottom fishing project. The main objectives of this project are to assess the potential for development of deep-water (80 - 300m) fish as a harvestable resource, and to gain basic biological information on the fish communities living at these depths
