SUMMARY

SUMMARY

IDENTIFICATION

SCIENTIFIC NAME(s)

Cetengraulis mysticetus

SPECIES NAME(s)

Pacific anchoveta, Sardina bocona

There is limited biometric data supporting the possibility of a distinct Panamanian stock of anchoveta (Berdegue, 1958) and there is evidence of little mixing with neighbouring regions (Bayliff, 1963) but no genetic studies are known to exist. In lack of a formal stock assessment a management unit is considered within Panamanian waters.

The main species captured in the small pelagic fishery in Panama are Pacific thread herring, Pacific anchoveta and Pacific bumper.
