Environmentalists Seek To Classify Great White Sharks As Endangered

A team of Northern California-based environmentalists have filed a petition with the federal National Marine Fisheries Service urging officials to declare great white sharks endangered and therefore in need of the highest regulatory safeguards.

According to The Santa Cruz Sentinel, Monterey-based Oceana and the San Francisco-based Center for Biological Diversity hope to see “both the federal and state government listing the U.S. West Coast population of great white sharks as endangered.”

Although accurate numbers are difficult to come by, experts believe there are fewer than 400 great white sharks active statewide. Roughly 10 juvenile sharks reportedly die each year, as a result of being mistakenly caught in nets. To adequately address these issues, the groups argue, additional conservation measures are needed, particularly around drift and gill net fisheries.
