Emergent research and priorities for shark and ray conservation

Published in Inter-Research Science Publiser | February 28, 2022
During the last 4 decades there has been a growing concern about the conservation status of elasmobranchs (sharks and rays). In 2002, the first elasmobranch species were added to Appendix II of the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora (CITES). To date and in less than 20 years, 39 species have been added to Appendix II and 5 to Appendix I. Despite growing concern, effective conservation and management continue to be questioned by a lack of data on the status of the population for many species. Read the following article and find out about the research carried out by several authors, including Diana Pazmiño, professor at USFQ Galapagos and researcher at the #GSC, which adds a variety of perspectives on emerging research and priorities for the conservation of elasmobranchs.
