No studies on the stock structure of opah in the Indian Ocean could be found. The resource is caught as bycatch in other large pelagics fisheries (Clarke et al. 2014) 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.
