West African geryon
The species is found along the West and SW African coasts. A single stock is considered to exist within Angolan and Namibian waters (FAO 2011) but the whole species' distribution was not included in the study. Namibia assesses (MFMR 2013) and manages the stock within their waters (Beyers 1994).
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.
