U.S. And Mexico Among 37 Countries Pursuing Shark And Ray Trade Measures

Porbeagles are prized for meat as well as fins.  Manta rays are increasingly targeted for their gill rakers, which are used in Chinese medicine.  Freshwater stingrays are traded for display in aquariums.

The porbeagle proposal comes from the EU and is cosponsored by Brazil, Comoros, and Egypt.  Ecuador has put forth the mantas while Colombia has proposed the freshwater stingrays.

Notes to Editors:

Shark Advocates International (SAI) is a project of The Ocean Foundation formed to advance sound conservation policies for sharks and rays. Humane Society International (HSI) is one of the only international animal protection organizations in the world working to protect all animals. SAI and HSI are collaborating with Wildlife Conservation Society, Project AWARE, Shark Trust, and the German Elasmobranch Society to promote CITES listings for sharks and rays.

This information is based on a provisional list posted by CITES. The final list is anticipated within days.
