SUMMARY

SUMMARY

IDENTIFICATION

SCIENTIFIC NAME(s)

Ocyurus chrysurus

SPECIES NAME(s)

Yellowtail snapper, Gaiúba

The species is found in the Western Central Atlantic region, from the US Atlantic coast, Gulf of Mexico, Caribbean Sea, to Brazil. The stock structure is not clearly understood. Some studies mentioned that differences were not detected between Florida Keys and western Caribbe (including Belize, Yucatan Peninsula and Campeche Bank) (O’Hop et al., 2012) while others genetic analysis revealed occurrence of up to four groupings (stocks) of yellowtail snapper: one in the Florida Keys, one along the west coast of Puerto Rico, one that includes the east coast of Puerto Rico and St. Thomas and one offshore of St. Croix (Saillant et al., 2012). However it’s not known if differences exist between Gulf of Mexico and West Caribbe. Vasconcellos et al. (2008) found distinct populations in South America (Brazil) and west Caribbe (Belize). This profile refers to the Honduras Western Central Atlantic management unit.

Fisheries

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.
