This report reviews stock monitoring options for kingfish. The commercial kingfish fisheries, because of their limited by-catch nature, offer poor stock monitoring potential. Sampling kingfish caught by recreational charter boat fisheries proved to be the best option for monitoring age composition in each of the kingfish QMAs. The ongoing recreational tagging data series has limited stock separation utility unless recreational effort data is also collected.
