When you adopt the No Limits? Sharks you'll also be helping to fund our campaign to stop uncontrolled fishing of these species in the Atlantic.


THE NO LIMITS? SHARKS


BLUE SHARKS

The Blue Shark is the most heavily fished. They're taken in huge volume as ‘wanted’ bycatch. Especially by Spanish and Portuguese pelagic longliners.

SHORTFIN MAKO

The Shortfin Mako is the fastest shark on record. Sadly they're caught with equal speed. Highly prized for meat and fins, they're an important bycatch for pelagic longliners fishing for tuna and swordfish.


SMOOTHHOUND

Smoothhounds are important predators in coastal waters. They keep the ecosystem in balance by targeting crabs, shrimp and small fish. An emerging market for smoothhounds will place huge pressure on shark populations. 


TOPE

Tope are one of the most widely fished sharks. Taken as bycatch and targeted for their meat, fins and liver oil. There is some management for Tope in UK waters, yet we want to see this extended across European waters.


CATSHARKS

Catsharks can be locally abundant. But patchy distribution and a low reproductive rate make them vulnerable. Careful management and monitoring is vital to ensuring sustainability of fisheries.
