Summary

IDENTIFICATION

Last updated on 7 August 2017

SCIENTIFIC NAME

Hoplostethus atlanticus

SPECIES NAME(S)

Orange roughy

The orange roughy (Hoplostethus atlanticus) is found in the North and South Atlantic, in the Southern Indian Ocean, the Tasman Sea, around New Zealand, and in the South Pacific. The species is caught on fish aggregations associated with seamounts. Some are straddling stocks, while others are entirely on the high seas. There is lack of information on the possible seasonal migrations and stock structure of Orange roughy in the Southern Indian ocean. No stock assessment have been located but FAO recommended that managers initially assume that each major isolated geographical feature on which a fishery occurs, pertains to an individual stock unit (FAO, 2002; Maguire et al., 2006).

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.
