Abstract

Red Emperor is exploited primarily in the North Coast Bioregion of Western Australia1, where it is one of the indicator species used to assess the status of the demersal resources. Smaller catches are taken in the Northern Territory and Queensland. In Western Australia, Red Emperor comprises separate biological stocks, one in each of the main management regions: the Northern Demersal Scalefish Fishery (Western Australia) and the Pilbara Demersal Scalefish Fisheries (Western Australia)2–3. Status is reported at the level of individual biological stocks in Western Australia. Since multiple biological stocks are present in Western Australia, there is a high likelihood of multiple biological stocks across the Northern Territory. However, there is currently no clear evidence of biological stock delineation in this jurisdiction, and status is reported at the jurisdictional level. Separate biological stocks are present in the Gulf of Carpentaria and on the Queensland east coast4. Status is reported at the level of individual biological stocks in Queensland.
