Conservation opportunities for ICCAT 2015: Sharks are among the most vulnerable animals taken in high seas fisheries for tuna and swordfish. ICCAT has led regional fisheries bodies in adoption of shark measures, but has yet to align its finning ban with best practice or agree basic, science-based limits for key shark species.
The goals of the AWARE Shark Conservation are to inform divers of the value of sharks to marine ecosystems and economies, to educate them about the causes of declining shark populations, to build an understanding of what is missing in current shark fisheries management, to dispel misperceptions that may block them from taking action, and to inspire them to help sharks by taking action.
