Listed as Critically Endangered, Angelshark (Squatina squatina) numbers have declined rapidly over the past ~100 years across their range. They are now a Prohibited Species to commercial vessels fishing in EU waters. In addition, they have domestic protection in England and Wales, giving them full protection from other activities, including recreational fishing'.

Angel Shark Project: Wales was launched by the Zoological Society of London and Natural Resources Wales in 2018. The Shark Trust is one of 15 partners which sit on the Steering Group. The aim of the project is to better understand and conserve Angelsharks in Welsh waters, through fisher-participation, heritage, and citizen-science.
