Asian moon scallop is distributed in the Eastern Indian Ocean and tropical western Pacific. Mahidol et al. (2007) found genetic differences in each of the Thai coasts and consider the existence of a population in Gulf of Thailand.
Within FishSource, the term "fishery" is used to indicate each unique combination of a flag country with a fishing gear, operating within a particular management unit, upon a resource. That resource may have a known biological stock structure and/or may be assessed at another level for practical or jurisdictional reasons. A fishery is the finest scale of resolution captured in FishSource profiles, as it is generally the scale at which sustainability can most fairly and practically be evaluated.
