This dataset is the result from sampling at 5 stations at the Polar Front in the western part of the Barents Sea. The samples were collected between 20 May 2022 and 25 May 2022. 5 pelagic trawl samples were collected with a Harstad pelagic trawl, which has an effective height of 9-11 m and width of 10-12 m when towed at ca. 3 knots. The mesh size of the inner liner of the cod end was 10 mm. The pelagic trawl was towed at ca. 3 knots for 20-30 min and abundances were standardized by converting to catch per unit effort (expressed in kilograms per cubic meter).
