Giant tiger prawn
Different populations can be found in the Indian and Pacific oceans. Some stock structure can be further found in the Indonesian Northern islands, East, West and the South arc (Sugama et al. 2002) (Abdul-Aziz et al. 2015). But the results are not enough to identify populations within each of Indonesian fisheries management areas. No assessment is known to be conducted thus a management unit for the Makassar Strait, Bone Bay, Flores Sea and Bali Sea is here considered.
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.
