Diversification and depletion in Vietnamese seahorse fisheries
five fishing gears that regularly caught seahorses intentionally and/or incidentally: otter trawls , while those that caught seahorses incidentally caught 1 and 3 per day respectively. The total catch focus on seahorses (Hippocampus spp.), globally traded, cryptic fishes that are notably vulnerable to seahorses specifically targeted seahorses and made the majority of their income from selling these fish; a novel finding divers that targeted seahorses caught them at mean rates of 23 and 32 seahorses per day respectively

Rare seahorses have big implications for small fishes in bycatch

Across all countries, fishers characterized seahorses as seahorses one such small fish taxon, the seahorses (Hippocampus spp.). Seahorse populations are typically overfishing. I assessed the impacts of nonselective gear on seahorses in one country by examining potential . Globally, my synthesis revealed that all fishing gears obtained seahorses in bycatch, but at very Rare seahorses have big implications for small fishes in bycatch

Among those species, seahorses (genus Hippocampus) are unusual because this genus has been the focus of 37 million seahorses across our sampled countries. Fisher interviews suggested that seahorse seahorses median catch per unit effort of seahorse bycatch across all five gear types was 0.96 seahorses per vessel
