Pacific red snapper, Rock cod
The dynamics of the yelloweye rockfish (Sebastes ruberrimus) resource, off the coast of the United States from southern California to the U.S.-Canadian border, follow the current understanding of yelloweye stock structure: large stocks linked via a common stock-recruit relationship with negligible adult movement among areas (Taylor and Wetzel., 2011).
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.
