Flat sharks: sawfish, giant guitarfishes, guitarfish, angel sharks and rays, rank as the most threatened families of elasmobranchs on the IUCN Red List. Flat sharks represent over 50% of the elasmobranchs listed on Annex II of the Barcelona Convention & GFCM/42/2018/2. Yet conservation action in the Mediterranean is still urgently required for: three species of Critically Endangered angel shark; the Blackchin Guitarfish; Common Guitarfish, and a host of rays – from the sizeable Endangered Giant Devil Rays to Butterfly Rays, and the endemic skates.
