Description
         Capelin is found in both the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans. It is eaten mainly dried (in Japan) although palatable products can be made from oily, pre-spawning capelin. Capelins have been consumed mainly by inhabitants of Polar Regions, but are seldom consumed further south. Female fish, separated from males by high-speed machines, are valued for their roe. Males are used for animal feed and fishmeal. Over 1 million tons of capelin are caught annually. It is important nourishment for cod and other fish. Therefore a decline in capelin stocks may reduce resources of more valuable fish in northern seas.
