Abstract

The first record of the juvenile northern wolffish Anarhichas denticulatus was reported 570 km away from the nearest border of the species natural habitat near the island of Jan Mayen, on the continental slope of Northeast Greenland. Also original and published data on the occurrence of juvenile northern wolffish in the European Arctic and North Atlantic are presented.
