Abstract Stock abundance estimates of trochus at four sites at West Nggela were obtained using the Peterson mark-recapture technique. Densities were calculated using reef areas obtained from high resolution aerial photographs. Densities on most reefs were apparently low compared to well-managed trochus fisheries elsewhere in the Pacific. A further six reefs did not have sufficient numbers of trochus for an estimate to be made using mark-recapture. Egg-per-recruit (EPR) and yield-per-recruit… CONTINUE READING
