TITLE: A preliminary market-based analysis of the Pohnpei, Micronesia, grouper (Serranidae: Epinephelinae) fishery reveals unsustainable fishing practices / K.L. Rhodes, M.H. Tupper
AUTHOR: Rhodes, K.L.
PUBLISHED: Coral Reefs,: 26, no. 2 , (2007).
DESCRIPTION: 335-344 pp.; 28 cm.
NOTES: Abstract: Serranids are important components of artisanal and commercial catch worldwide, but are highly susceptible to overfishing.In Pohnpei (Micronesia), a recent coral fish market survey revealed a reliance on night time spearfishing and a serranid catch composed primarily all epinepheline species. Fishing effort was concentrated in one of five mucipalities and was disproportionate to the population distribution. Lagoon areas were fished preferentially to outer reef areas, with bothe catch size distribution and species composition similar between two areas. Some species were unique to a particular gear type, but catch composition did not vary substantially between spear and line fishing....
