This is the first time that IUCN Red List criteria, considered the world’s most comprehensive inventory of the conservation status of plants and animals, have been used to classify open ocean, or pelagic, sharks and rays.The list is part of an ongoing international scientific project to monitor the animals.Sharks are “profoundly vulnerable” to overfishing, they say. This is principally because many species take several years to mature and have relatively few young.”[But] despite mounting threats, sharks remain virtually unprotected on the high seas,” said Sonja Fordham, deputy chair of the IUCN Shark Specialist Group and one of the editors of the report.”[We have] documented serious overfishing of these species, in national and international waters.
