Shark Species under the MoU
Seven species of sharks are currently listed in Annex I of the CMS Sharks MOU.
Signatories recognize the critical role that migratory sharks play in marine ecosystems and local economies, and are concerned about the significant mortality of sharks (...) from a range of impacts and threats.
Signatories are convinced that the vulnerability of migratory sharks to such threats warrants further development of conservation measures [...] and enhanced implementation and enforcement of existing conservation measures.
