AuthorsD. Ebert
AbstractThe Convention on the Conservation of Migratory Species of Wild Animals (UNEP/CMS) currently lists 29 elasmobranch species (13 sharks and 16 rays) on its Appendices I and/or II, with Appendix I requesting the full protection of species and II the development of a specialized (“regional”) agreement to foster cooperation of all Range States to conserve the listed species. All species of sharks and rays are included in Appendix II, which means that these species would benefit from international cooperation, and 19 species are additionally included in Annex 1 of the Convention. In 2010 a specialized agreement as foreseen for Appendix II listed species was concluded for migratory sharks. This Memorandum of Understanding for migratory Sharks (Sharks MOU) already includes seven species in Annex 1.
