SUMMARY

IDENTIFICATION

Last updated on 9 May 2018

SCIENTIFIC NAME(s)

Ruditapes philippinarum

SPECIES NAME(s)

Japanese carpet shell

The native range of Japanese carpet shell is the Eastern Pacific but the species is already well-established in Northern America and Europe after the introduction in the 20th century. A study on population genetics was performed in these 2 regions but Portuguese seabeds were not included (Cordero et al. 2017). The species can be found in different rivers (Tejo, Sado) and lagoon systems (Ria de Aveiro, Ria Formosa, Lagoa de Albufeira) but no systematic assessment is known to exist apart occasional studies to characterize the fishery (Garaulet 2011)(Ramajal et al. 2016)(Carvalho 2017)

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.
