        Sharks worth more in seas than in soups, study finds A study of 70 fisheries and ecotourism sites in 45 countries found that sharks make more . Abstract. The demand for shark products especially fins and cartilage, has led to an expansion in fisheries and trade throughout the region. Increased fishing efforts, scarce biological data, and lack of management are key factors that negatively impact this fishery.

A few weeks ago, H.R. The Sustainable Shark Fisheries and Trade Act, was introduced into Congress. The purpose of this bill is to “encourage a science-based approach to significantly reduce the overfishing and unsustainable trade of sharks, rays and skates around the world and prevent shark finning,” according to a press release from Mote Marine Lab.

Understanding Atlantic Shark Fishing. J U.S. shark fishermen work under some of the most robust environmental standards in the world.

Our science-based management has made significant progress toward ending overfishing and rebuilding the stocks of Atlantic sharks. Yet an analysis of U.N.

trade data suggests exports of shark products from Central America have nearly doubled since That suggests that despite regulations, there is more shark fishing in Author: Sarah Blaskey. A total of shark species and a further 28 taxonomic groupings of shark, ray, and chimaera species were recorded as caught by international fisheries worldwide.

The majority of catches of sharks and rays are recorded in general shark groups and not to species level when reported to the Food and Agricultural Organization (FAO) of the United.

A new interactive infographic, from the environmental organization Project AWARE®, illustrates the full story of current, trade-related threats to shark and ray populations based on the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) report “State of the Global Market for Shark Products” by Felix Dent and Shelley Clarke.

The appetite for shark fin soup has played a major role. History of International Shark Fisheries •Historically driven by the shark fin and liver oil trades •Key nations in the Pacific have been Japan, Chinese Taipei, Indonesia •Little data on shark landings exist, but FAO statistics suggest that shark landings in the Pacific has beent since the s.

Shark fishing in the United States occurs both recreationally and commercially. Commercial shark fishers use methods that allow them to catch large quantities of sharks to be sold at market. Recreational shark fishers mainly catch sharks for the thrill of the catch, trophies and/or personal consumption.

and fins, is an essential tool to support shark conservation, fisheries management and international trade regulation, prevent further depletion of stocks, and enable their recovery. As an example, the teeth or jaws of protected species, such as the White Shark, are still offered for sale or traded between countries as curios or trophies.

Title: Shark fisheries and the trade in sharks and shark products of Southeast Asia (Scanned PDF, MB) Author: Chen Hin Keong (editor) Subject. A leading American fisheries trade journal observed, "After the U.S.

fleet eventually geared up, it took up where the foreign fleets had left off, especially in the Northeast. By the mids, catches of bedrock species like Atlantic cod had plummeted from more t metric tons to ab metric tons," making cod "a cause célèbre.".

A shark sanctuary is an area that forbids commercial fishing operations from targeting and retaining caught sharks, including their fins. The first shark sanctuary was created by Palau in It was followed by Maldives, Honduras, The Bahamas and Tokelau.

But a study found the majority of shark researchers surveyed believe sustainable shark fisheries are possible and preferable to widespread bans.

Many reported they knew of real-world examples. Shark species are increasingly becoming threatened because of commercial and recreational fishing pressures, the impact of non-shark fisheries on the seabed and shark prey species, and other habitat alterations such as damage and loss from coastal development and marine pollution.

Rising demands for shark products has increased pressure on shark fisheries, but little monitoring or management.José I. Castro is a fisheries biologist with NOAA and a senior scientist at Mote Marine Laboratory. He received a B.S. from the University of Miami and a Ph.D.

in Zoology from Clemson University. He is a shark specialist who has conducted research on different aspects of shark biology including their reproductive biology and their use of nursery areas, and has published numerous scientific Cited by: Fisheries scientist Daniel Pauly says the government action “is enough to eliminate finning from the radar of Western organizations.

And it may continue under the radar until the last shark is.
