ICES advises on the  basis of  precautionary considerations that  there  shouldbe  no directed fishery and bycatch should be minimized.

Due  to  its  very  low  productivity,  orange  roughy  can  only  sustain  very  low  rates  of  exploitation. Based  on  the  currentinformation,it is not possible to manage a sustainable fishery for this species.
