Profile updated on 6 September 2017
The stock structure of wahoo in the Indian Ocean is not yet understood (Zischke et al. 2013). The resource is caught as bycatch in other large pelagics fisheries and no formal stock assessment seems to exist thus a management unit within Indonesian waters is here considered.
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.
