Given a compact surface, we consider the set of area-preserving flows with isolated fixed points. The study of these flows dates back to Novikov in the 80s and since then many properties have been investigated. Starting from an overview of the known results, we show that typical such flows admitting several minimal components are mixing when restricted to each minimal component and we provide an estimate on the decay of correlations for smooth observables.
