Profile updated on 21 November 2018
Yellowtail amberjack range widely throughout Australian and New Zealand waters. However mitochondrial research indicates that two separate stocks exists in Australian waters (Miller et al. 2011) Eastern and Western Yellowtail amberjack. It is suggested that the Eastern stock is also prevalent in New Zealand waters.
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.
