Details:

  • Description:
    "This status review report was conducted in response to two petitions to list the great hammerhead shark under the Endangered Species Act (ESA) (petitioners: WildEarth Guardians on December 21, 2012; Natural Resources Defense Council on March 19, 2013). NMFS evaluated the petitions to determine whether the petitioners provided substantial information as required by the ESA to list a species. Additionally, NMFS evaluated whether information contained in the petitions might support the identification of a distinct population segment (DPS) that may warrant listing as a species under the ESA. NMFS determined that the petitions presented substantial scientific and commercial information, or cited such information in other sources, that the petitioned action may be warranted and, subsequently, NMFS initiated a status review of the great hammerhead shark. This status review report is comprised of two components: (1) the "Status Review" of the species, a document that compiles the best available information on the status of the great hammerhead shark as required by the ESA, and (2) the "Assessment of Extinction Risk" for the species, a document that provides the methods and conclusions of the NMFS Extinction Risk Analysis (ERA) team on the current and future extinction risk of the great hammerhead shark"--Executive Summary.
