Use and Trade [top]

Use and Trade: Percis matsuii may be taken as by-catch by trawler fisheries.

Threats [top]

Major Threat(s): Due to the deep-water nature of Percis matsuii, it is unlikely to be impacted by threats such as coastal development.  However, it may be taken as by-catch by trawler fisheries.  It is unknown whether this poses a significant threat to this species, but fisheries are over-exploited in this region and by-catch is insufficiently monitored.

Conservation Actions [top]

Conservation Actions: There are no known species-specific conservation measures in place for Percis matsuii.  Further research is needed to determine the abundance of this species and the impact of threats such as by-catch.

Errata [top]
