Sharks and rays have a higher level of protection of endangered animal Convention on October 3, 2016, the seventeenth session of the "international trade in endangered species Convention" conference of the parties (CITES CoP 17) decided to wire the sharks, sharks and manta rays listed in Appendix II, so as to strengthen the protection of. The species listed in Appendix II are species that are likely to be threatened and allowed to trade without damaging the survival and reproduction of species. "This is to strengthen the silk shark an important step to protect the silk shark, thresher sharks and manta rays." The International Fund for animal welfare (IFAW) chief representative of the Middle East and North Africa Elsayed Ahmed Mohamed said, "the sharks and rays of fish products are the highest goods worldwide profits, illegal fishing is widespread, and the lack of appropriate supervision and reporting system to track the behavior. The lack of reliable transaction data and population statistics results in the lack of corresponding protection measures. The resolution will help to change it. " About 100 million sharks are caught every year. The survey showed that the number of sharks may have decreased by 80% in the past decade. The shark fin, flesh and gills in increasing demand, the market prices also rose sharply, leading to overfishing of sharks, as well as bycatch often concealed. Silk shark, thresher sharks and manta ray slow growth, late maturity, litter less, especially vulnerable to overfishing threat. All these species are threatened by international trade, and the number of wild populations is decreasing. The habitat deterioration is also limited by the distribution area. With the poor management and the demand of global shark body parts and products, these species are facing many threats. The proposals were proposed by Republic of Maldives (silk sharks), Sri Lanka (long tailed sharks) and the Republic of Fiji (manta rays). The shark proposal got 111 support tickets, 30 opposition tickets and 5 abstention tickets. The long tailed shark proposed 108 support tickets, 29 opposition tickets and 5 abstention tickets. Manta ray proposal has received 110 votes, 20 votes and 3 abstentions.

鲨鱼和鳐鱼获得濒危动物公约更高级别保护   2016年10月3日,第17届《濒危野生动植物种国际贸易公约》缔约方大会(CITES CoP 17)决定将丝鲨、长尾鲨和蝠鲼列入附录II,从而加强对其保护。附录II所列物种是可能会面临威胁的物种,在不损害物种生存繁衍的情况下允许进行交易。 丝鲨   “这是加强保护丝鲨、长尾鲨和蝠鲼的重要一步。” 国际爱护动物基金会(IFAW)中东和北非地区总代表Elsayed Ahmed Mohamed说,“鲨鱼和鳐鱼制品是全世界利润最高的鱼类商品,违规捕捞普遍存在,且缺乏相应的监管和申报系统追踪上述行为。缺少可靠的交易数据和种群统计数据,导致缺乏相应的保护措施。此项决议将有助于对此作出改变。”   每年约1亿条鲨鱼被捕捞。调查显示,过去十几年,某些鲨鱼数量可能减少了80%。对鲨鱼鳍、肉和腮板的需求不断增加,其市场价格也在急剧上升,导致对鲨鱼的过渡捕捞,以及时常的误捕瞒报。   丝鲨、长尾鲨和蝠鲼生长缓慢、成熟晚、产仔少,特别容易受到过度捕捞的威胁。这些物种都受到国际贸易的威胁,野生种群数量在不断下滑;且受分布区域的限制,栖息地恶化;再加上管理不善、全球性鲨鱼身体部位及其制品的需求,使它们生存面临重重威胁。   提案分别由马尔代夫共和国(丝鲨)、斯里兰卡(长尾鲨)和斐济共和国(蝠鲼)提出。   丝鲨提案得到111张支持票,30张反对票,以及5张弃权票。长尾鲨提案得到108张支持票,以及29张反对票,以及5张弃权票。蝠鲼提案得到110张支持票,20张反对票,以及3张弃权票。相关的主题文章:
