 Fishery Bulletin: Intermingling and seasonal migrations of Greenland halibut populations determined from tagging ...
Greenland halibut in the fjords of northwestern Greenland appear to be resident in behavior and do not intermingle with offshore or more southerly inshore populations.
The Greenland halibut populations off the eastern coast of Canada, in Davis Strait, in the fjords of western Greenland, in the Denmark Strait, and in Icelandic waters are believed to be recruited from these spawning grounds (Templeman, 1973; Sigurdsson (1)).
A number of Greenland halibut populations seem to maintain a degree of isolation without any prespawning migration to their original spawning areas; this is characteristic of the Greenland halibut population in the Gulf of St. Lawrence (Khan et al., 1982) as well as for populations in the fjords of northwestern Greenland (Riget and Boje, 1989).

Norse explorers from the Greenland settlements certainly visited the eastern seaboard of North America, as evidenced by the ruins of the Norse depot found in Newfoundland in 1961.
But Greenland was not rich enough to pay tribute to a foreign country, and so gathering items to pay the annual royal tithes withered the Greenland economy : the settlers could not produce their own goods to trade as well as goods to pay their tithes.
To begin with, on the matter of the Greenland colonies being exhausted by paying tribute to the King of Norway and the Church, there is actually no evidence that the settlers ever recognized the King as their overlord, let alone paid tribute to him or his successors.
