This is a multi-species profile for the Lutjanus species (snappers). Snappers are not separated by species in official catch records (same in FAO production dataset) or the fishery evaluations conducted by Indonesia’s Commission for Stock Assessments. The most common species of snapper reported in FMA (WPP) 715 is Aphareus rutilans (Banks 2020). There is no consensus yet on the stock structure of these species in Indonesia. This profile may undergo restructuring in the future as new information comes to light. This profile refers to Tomini Bay - Serams Seas (WPP 715) assessment unit.
