About this book

This Status Survey provides a comprehensive resource documenting
the biology, threats and opportunities for global action for the
conservation of chondrichthyan fishes. A much-needed report, it arose out of widespread concern that many populations are in serious decline worldwide due to exploitation by humans. Representing over 12 years of work by dedicated scientists and conservationists, there is a wealth of information contained within its eight chapters, including:

*information on taxonomy, biology, and life history
*the products, trade, and economics of exploitation
*regional reports summarising shark fisheries from 9 geopolitical SSG regions and their fishing nations
* status assessments for more than 100 species

An invaluable book for all organisations and individuals interested in the sustainable management and conservation of chondrichthyan stocks. The series it forms part of is one of the world's most authoritative sources of species conservation information available.
