Abstract


Specimens of Lycodes adolfi were collected from an epibenthic sampler at six stations near Jan Mayen and in the eastern part of the Norwegian Sea. The stations were at depths from 708 to 2150 m and all of them had subzero water temperatures. The records substantially increase the known distribution of this cold-water eelpout, previously known only from waters near Greenland.
