Abstract
Arabian Albulids: A Biological Assessment of Bonefish in the Saudi Arabian Red Sea Bonefish (Albula spp.) support an unregulated commercial fishery in Saudi Arabia, and no biological information currently exists on these fish in the Red Sea. Here, we utilize molecular tools and conventional fisheries techniques to resolve the taxonomy of these fish and provide foundational data to base management upon. Considering the value of bonefish as a sportfish and the anticipated growth of eco-tourism along Saudi's coast, it is important to understand bonefish biology so that they can be best managed into the future.
