Abstract

Sharks, including their close relatives the rays, are facing a global extinction crisis too many are being caught in fisheries and they are disappearing from our oceans at alarming rates. In 2021, in the pages of this very journal, the extent of this crisis was laid bare: 391 of 1,199 assessed species (>95% of all known species) are threatened with extinction, and three species are possibly already extinct.
