Cubillos, L. and Olave, M. (1992) Estimating the maximum sustainable yield of bonito (Sarda chiliensis, Scombridae) of northern Chile from monthly catch data. Naga, the ICLARM Quarterly, 15(2), pp. 38-40.
Monthly catch data of bonito Sarda chiliensis from northern Chile, from 1976 to 1989, were used to obtain a series of estimates of the Z-G parameter (i.e., total mortality minus the growth coefficient in weight). This series was then used to estimate a maximum sustainable yield of 4,500 t/year through a modified version of the surplus production model of J. Csirke and J. Caddy. The status of the fishery is discussed.
