    along with an overview of the fisheries, use, trade, and management affecting their conservation. Pelagic sharks and rays are a relatively small group, representing only about 6% . The book’s 34 chapters compile current knowledge of dogfish, their ecology, and their management worldwide. It reviews historical fisheries, evaluates past and current management strategies, and provides new biological and ecological information from both the .

    Recently, declining populations of several pelagic shark species have led to global conservation concerns surrounding this group. As a result, a series of species-specific banning measures have been implemented by Regional Fishery Management Organizations (RFMOs) in charge of tuna fisheries, which include retention bans, finning bans and trading bans. Shark Facts about iconic shark species such as whale sharks, basking sharks and tiger sharks. Learn the difference between pelagic, oceanic sharks and reef sharks. Facts about rays, including the giant manta ray. Rays are thought to have evolved from flattened shark species.

    The low reproductive rate of many sharks implies that sharks should be highly vulnerable to current commercial fishing practices, and there is a history of collapse in past shark fisheries. This suggests that a new, more conservative approach needs to be taken concerning the fishing of these animals. Pelagic sharks face unprecedented levels of exploitation in all the world's oceans through both direct fisheries and by-catch, and effective management for these species is contingent upon solid science and data, which this book brings together for the first time. All those involved in shark biology will need to have a copy of this book.
