Chondrichthyans in crisis: Conserving sharks, rays and chimaera

Research output: Contribution to conferenceConference presentation/ephemera

Abstract

Chondryichthyans are a diverse class of fish, comprising over a thousand species that range from the largest fish in the ocean to tiny animals smaller than a human hand. Some sharks, rays and chimaera are top predators and others harmless filter feeders, but most are poorly understood. Yet it is known that many of them play an important role in our marine ecosystems but are under increasing pressure, largely from fishing. In this presentation, Erika will introduce these amazing animals, outline their importance and conservation status, and explore threats to them, before explaining the laws for their conservation and management.
