Managing Shark Fisheries: Opportunities for International Conservation

Document (scanned PDF, 6.7 MB) Michael L. Weber, Sonja V. Fordham. (March 1997). 61pp. ISBN 1 85850 115 6 (ISBN 978 1 85850 115 4). This report, a joint project of the Center for Marine Conservation and TRAFFIC International, regarding existing international agreements that may promote the conservation of sharks. The report analyses several existing international fisheries regimes, and identifies gaps in the conservation of sharks. Gaps are of two general types - geographical and functional gaps. A comparison of the range of key species of sharks with the jurisdiction of existing fisheries management regimes reveals large gaps in some areas.
