NAFO stock divisions for Atlantic Cod (Gadus morhua) in the Northwest Atlantic

The map shows the distribution of  sample series used in Carr & Crutcher (1998)
,  in the context of NAFO (Northwest Atlantic Fisheries Organization) stock divisions. The Hawke Channel, Trinity Bay, & North Cape samples occur in 2J3KL ("Northern Cod"), and the Scaterie Bank, Bay of Fundy, & George's Bank samples occur south of the Gulf of St. Lawrence in Division 4. Flemish Cap is an offshore seamount in Division 3M, outside the 200-mile limit. Genetic differentiation among these samples is unrelated to geographic distribution, except that Flemish Cap is distinctive (Marshall, Johnstone, Pope, & Carr, in prep.).
