The joint management of Norway and Russia in the Barents Sea has been successful in conserving the living resources and is a major factor contributing to the present rich fisheries in the area. The basis for this is scientific research, which to a large extent has been conducted through a long-lasting cooperation between Russian and Norwegian scientists that has expanded greatly over the past half century. Based on joint Russian-Norwegian authorships, this monumental anthology celebrates the scientific cooperation by reflecting on the historical development and the scientific methods applied, and by offering a comprehensive presentation of the vast knowledge of the Barents Sea resources and ecosystem obtained through these cooperative efforts.
This anthology reflects on the cooperation between Norway and Russia in conserving the living resources of the Barents Sea, both on its historical development and the scientific methods employed.
