The Defra Shark, Skate and Ray conservation plan

The Defra Shark, Skate and Ray conservation plan explains the role of elasmobranchs in the ecosystem, their characteristics, and the pressures facing them. It summarises current management and conservation measures to protect sharks, skates and rays and sets out policy objectives. Defra aim to meet these policy objectives by pursuing work on all the areas in the fields of action, in line with the timetable.

The Plan is also meant to help secure their overarching aim of managing elasmobranch stocks sustainably so that depleted stocks recover and that those faring better are fished sustainably
