    Abstract

    This widely distributed species inhabits soft and hard bottom habitat and is generally regarded to be relatively common. It is captured in grouper fisheries in some localities and there are concerns for possible overfishing in Japan, Abu Dhabi, Hong Kong and Indonesia. Quantified declines have not yet been detected within the limited data that are available. Given that fishing is not known to be driving global-level declines at this time, it is listed as Least Concern. Improved monitoring and management of fisheries is strongly recommended, and research on life history would be beneficial.
