Assessment Information [top]

Red List Category & Criteria: Least Concern ver 3.1
Year Published: 2010
Date Assessed: 2009-03-27
Assessor(s): Herdson, D., Robertson, R. & Smith-Vaniz, B.
Reviewer(s): Collen, B., Richman, N., Beresford, A., Chenery, A. & Ram, M.

Justification:
Although Alectis ciliaris is harvested in commercial fisheries, it has an extremely large distribution and is considered common in many parts of its range. It is therefore assessed as Least Concern. Further research on the life history characteristics of this species is needed to accurately determine vulnerability to potential threats.

Population [top]

Population: This species is common in many parts of its range such as in the Indo-pacific.
Population Trend: Unknown

Habitat and Ecology [top]

Habitat and Ecology: This species is pelagic in neritic and oceanic waters. Adults are usually solitary and frequent shallow coastal waters; juveniles are pelagic and drift. Its diet consists of slow-swimming or sedentary crustaceans, and occasionally small crabs and fishes. This species is found at a maximum depth of  60 m. Adults are demersal, however juveniles up to 25 cm are pelagic.
Systems: Marine

Use and Trade [top]

Use and Trade: This species is collected from the wild as a food source. Juveniles are collected for the aquarium trade.

Threats [top]

Major Threat(s): There are no major threats known to this species. This species is sometimes harvested by commercial fisheries, and is occasionally collected for the aquarium trade, however there is no current indication of a population decline.

Conservation Actions [top]

Conservation Actions: There are no species-specific conservation measures in place for this species, however its falls within numerous marine protected areas.

Further research is needed on the life history characteristics of this large species to determine vulnerability to potential threats.
