SUMMARY

SUMMARY

IDENTIFICATION

SCIENTIFIC NAME(s)

Lutjanus analis

SPECIES NAME(s)

Mutton snapper

Mutton snapper presents a widely distribution in the western Atlantic, ranging from United States to Brazil including Bermuda, the Gulf of Mexico, and the Caribbean. The limits of the biologic structure are not completed clear. Mutton Snapper in the Southeast United States is considered a single stock that is centered in south Florida (O’Hop et al., 2015). A recent study of the genetics of specimens from the Florida Keys, Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Virgin Islands (Carson., et al. 2011) supports the single stock hypothesis. This profile refers to the US South Atlantic and Gulf of Mexico Mutton Snapper assessment unit.

Fisheries

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.
