Abstract

Crimson Snapper is a widespread Indo–Pacific species found throughout tropical Australian waters. Research on the biological stock structure of this species has only occurred in northern Australian waters, including the Timor Sea, the Arafura Sea and the Gulf of Carpentaria1. A single genetic stock was found across this region. It is believed that the species has a similar biological stock structure to Saddletail Snapper (Lutjanus malibaricus)—that is, a North West Shelf biological stock and a biological stock off the east coast of Queensland, in addition to the northern Australian biological stock.
