The Protection of
Sharks and Groupers
Improving species catch data collection for the conservation and management of sharks and rays in Kenya
This project aims to:
i) introduce species level identification in the collection of catch and effort data on sharks and rays at three primary fish landing sites and
ii) assess species specific threats from fishing to develop a policy brief for government management agencies.
The project will also facilitate an increased understanding and awareness of the ecological importance of sharks and rays among fishers and managers.
