Cinnabar goatfish, Red Mullet, Goatfish
Cinnabar goatfish, whose stock structure is unknown, is found in coastal areas of the Indian Ocean and western region of the Pacific Ocean from the Eastern African Coast to Fiji (Froese and Pauly 2018). In the Indo-Pacific species identification is also uncertain (Randall and Heemstra 2009). This profile represents Cinnabar goatfish from Indonesian 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.
