Gafftopsail sea catfish
The stock structure is unknown and no formal assessment is known to be conducted so a management unit within Mexican waters is considered. The species is captured from Tamaulipas to Quintana Roo (SAGARPA 2012).
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.
