A predictive framework was developed for assessing risk of overfishing in spawning aggregation fisheries. The bivariate framework is based on intrinsic and extrinsic indicators, for which scales of vulnerability were developed. A global selection of fisheries was assessed by experts, who scored each indicator during interviews. This dataset contains those expert scores. Also, indicators were weighted for their importance in terms of conferring vulnerability to overfishing. Weightings are also included in the dataset.
