Sharks and rays caught in Mediterranean and Black Seas go unreported

"Shark and ray species commonly caught in the Mediterranean and Black seas are not being reported in official statistics.. 97 per cent of the sharks and rays caught and brought to market domestically by fleets from the European, North African and Middle Eastern countries that surround these seas are not reported by species.... now between 53 per cent and 71 per cent of them face an elevated risk of extinction" - Excerpt from Sea Around Us.
