SPECIES NAME(s)

Swordfish

Genetic studies have been inconclusive on the population structure of swordfish in the Indian Ocean. They are assessed at the regional level with a sub-assessment conducted for the SW Indian Ocean population (IOTC 2013).

This profile covers the fishery improvement project (fip) large pelagic species including swordfish caught by longline and handline in Indonesian EEZ waters of the Indian Ocean. The fip is currently run by PT Intimas Surya (http://fisheriesimprovementindonesia.org/tuna-fip/).
