SUMMARY

SUMMARY

IDENTIFICATION

SCIENTIFIC NAME(s)

Xiphopenaeus kroyeri

SPECIES NAME(s)

Atlantic seabob

Currently, might be sufficient evidence to justify treating the Suriname and Guyana seabob stocks as discrete units for assessment and management purposes (Gusmão et al. 2006). However, an alternative stock structure hypothesis should be explored in future assessments which may require a revision of the stock structure (Southall et al. 2020).


ANALYSIS

Strengths
  • Guyana Atlantic seabob stock biomass is fluctuating at or above MSY level (CRFM Fishery Reports 2019).
