Smooth Hammerhead Target Fishing and By-catch in Puerto López, Ecuador: Trends in Catch and Recommendations for Mitigation
Sharks have not historically been considered a valuable resource but, with the increase in demand for their fins, shark catch numbers have risen dramatically and many shark populations are suffering.
The demise of Darwin's fishes: evidence of fishing down and illegal shark finning in the Galápagos Islands
TLDR
Total landings associated with the industrial and artisanal fisheries of the Galapagos Islands were compiled and analysed in an effort to assess accurately the amount of seafood that has been extracted from this region over the last six decades.
A RECONSTRUCTION OF FISHERIES CATCHES FOR THE GALÁPAGOS ISLANDS , 1950-2010
2 ABSTRACT The Galápagos Islands are one of Earth's last biodiversity edens. As such, the conservation of their terrestrial and marine wildlife, including the sustainable management of local
Distant water industrial fishing in developing countries: A case study of Madagascar
TLDR
Analyzing industrial fishing effort occurring within Madagascar’s Exclusive Economic Zone from 2012-2020 found that Taiwanese vessels using drifting longlines, with a focus on tuna, and Malagasy shrimp trawlers were the most prevalent.
THE THREAT OF SMALL SCALE FISHERIES OF SHARK IN SUMENEP REGENCY FOR EFFECTIVE AND SUSTAINABLE MANAGEMENT NEEDS
The high demand of shark products, particularly fins, have influenced the increase in the exploitation and trade of sharks, included small scale fisheries. The condition can increase the
Understanding non-compliance in small-scale fisheries: Shark fishing in Myanmar’s Myeik Archipelago
TLDR
It is emphasized that in resource-dependent communities, improving compliance for effective shark conservation may require addressing broader issues of poverty, food security and the lack of alternatives.

In hot soup: sharks captured in Ecuador's waters
Sharks never stop growing and neither does the Asian demand for sharkfin soup. Ecuador is one nation of many that feeds the demand for fins, and fishers there catch more than 40 different shark

Loss of Large Predatory Sharks from the Mediterranean Sea
TLDR
This study reconstructs long-term population trends of large predatory sharks in the northwestern Mediterranean Sea to suggest that current levels of exploitation put large sharks at risk of extinction in the Mediterranean Sea.
The effects of fishing on sharks, rays, and chimaeras (chondrichthyans), and the implications for marine ecosystems
TLDR
The effects of fishing on sharks, rays, and chimaeras (chondrichthyans), and the implications for marine ecosystems are examined at the single-species level and through trophic interactions.
Global estimates of shark catches using trade records from commercial markets.
TLDR
The results provide the first fishery-independent estimate of the scale of shark catches worldwide and indicate that shark biomass in the fin trade is three to four times higher than shark catch figures reported in the only global data base.
You can swim but you can't hide: the global status and conservation of oceanic pelagic sharks and rays
TLDR
These species exhibit a wide range of life-history characteristics, but many have relatively low productivity and consequently relatively high intrinsic vulnerability to over-exploitation, including the shortfin mako shark.
The Role of Sharks and Longline Fisheries in a Pelagic Ecosystem of the Central Pacific
TLDR
Analysis of the Central North Pacific model reveals that sharks are not keystone predators, but that increases in longline fisheries can have profound effects on the food webs that support sharks.
