Lizardfishes nei (multispecies)
The stock structure of brushtooth lizardfish is not defined and no stock assessment could be found thus a management unit within Vietnamese waters is here considered. The map below regards the distribution within Vietnamese waters (Russell, 1999). Kien Giang Trawl FIP regards a Vietnamese multi-species fishery that captures around 60-100+ species (SFP, 2015). This profile covers Lizardfishes nei that can be caught in Kien Giang province waters.
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.
