Business partner or simple catch? The economic value of the sicklefin lemon shark in French Polynesia

Published on 24 June 2011. E. Clua, N. Buray, P. Legendr, J. Mourier, S. Planes. ABSTRACT: Most arguments invoked so far by the scientific community in favour of shark conservation rely on the ecological importance of sharks, and have little impact on management policies. During a 57-month study, we were able to individually recognise 39

Killing for conservation the need for alternatives to lethal sampling of apex predatory sharks

Killing for conservation the need for alternatives to lethal sampling of apex predatory sharks

Published on 22. June 2011 Neil Hammerschlag, James Sulikowski. ABSTRACT: Top oceanic predators, especially large predatory sharks (TOPS), appear to be experiencing varying degrees of population declines. Life history data (e.g. diet, reproductive status, age and growth, mortality) are critical for developing effective conservation strategies for TOPS. Presently, lethal sampling remains the most effective and

Elasmobranchs of the Persian (Arabian) Gulf ecology, human aspects and research priorities for their improved management

Published on 17. May 2011 Alec B. M. Moore ABSTRACT: Given widespread concern about the status of elasmobranch fishes globally, information on this group in the Persian (Arabian) Gulf is reviewed comprehensively for the first time. The Arabian region may be of overlooked significance to elasmobranch biogeography, and the environmentally unique Gulf has some highly
