Update of the Sharks and Rays Identification Guide by the Greek General Directorate for Sustainable Fisheries

iSea welcomes the update of the Sharks and Rays Identification Guide by the Greek General Directorate for Sustainable Fisheries. Now the guide incorporates PD 67/1981, the recent changes of CITES Convention regarding the Alopias spp., and better images for the species’ accurate identification.

At the same time, iSea feels satisfied that the continuous interventions and letters to the Ministry had a positive result. It is now in the hands of fishermen to respect the law and protect our seas but also in the hands of coast guards to enforce it. iSea will further promote the guide and stay alert to achieve accurate and effective awareness and education of the public, fishers and fish market stakeholders.
