Publications. Article. Collette, Bruce B. [Book review] "The Future of Bluefin Tunas: Ecology, Fisheries. The Western and Central Pacific Fisheries Commission (WCPFC) Tuna Fishery Yearbook presents annual catch estimates in the WCPFC Statistical Area from to The tables of catch statistics cover the main commercial tuna and billfish species caught in the region: albacore (Thunnus alalunga), bigeye (Thunnus obesus), skipjack (Katsuwonus pelamis), yellowfin .

    This publication is a concise, richly visual guide to 44 highly migratory species, offering at-a-glance physical descriptions, habitat and distribution information, and diagnostic and field photographs, including side-by-side comparisons of many similar species. Includes information about reducing the risk of shark attack. The Indo-Pacific blue marlin (Makaira mazara) is found primarily in tropical and subtropical waters of the Indian Ocean between latitudes 25 o N and 40 o to 45°S of the southwestern region and 35°S in the southeastern region.M mazara is largely a non-target specie of industrial and artisanal fisheries. Western Indian Ocean is the main fishing area operated by longliners which account .

      Richard Ellis is the author of more than ten books, including The Book of Whales (Knopf, ), Monsters of the Sea (Knopf, ), Imagining Atlantis (Knopf, ), The Search for the Giant Squid (Lyons, ), and, most recently, Aquagenesis (Viking, ). A research associate at the American Museum of Natural History in New York, he is also a celebrated 4/5(3). In broader studies to understand the relationships among tunas, mackerels, and billfishes, Block et al. () and Finnerty and Block () examined nucleotides of the cyt b gene among 30 species. These studies included nine species of tunas and provided direct comparison of sequence variability between northern and southern bluefin tunas.

(, ), Suzuki (), and Fujino () for the Tg blood group of albacore tuna showed little allele-frequency heterogeneity between albacore tuna sampled from the north and south Pacific Ocean, suggesting that fish in this area consist of a single, genetically homogeneous population.

There were, however, allele-frequency shifts.
