Sharks' status still threatened

Post by dook » Mon May 25, 2020 11:54 am

From this report, commercial fishing blamed for the inability of protected sharks to recover.

Quote: "Since recovery plans, conservation advice and management strategies have been implemented for shark and ray species listed as threatened under the Environment Protection and Biodiversity Conservation Act 1999 (EPBC Act) there have been no measurable improvements in their status. They all remain threatened with extinction ... "

Might not seem relevant in the NT where sharks are generally common, but clearly a problem for some species.
