Sharks : conservation, governance and management

Complete Title: 
Sharks : conservation, governance and management
Non IUCN Publication
Abstract: 

This book explores the global conservation and management of sharks. There has been a rapid decline in populations of many shark species, while new science has emerged of the critical role they play in marine ecosystems. However, conservation law and policy have been slow to develop, with only a handful of iconic species being protected worldwide. This book surveys our current knowledge and status of the law and science in relation to sharks, with a particular focus on improving frameworks for their conservation and management.
