Statues review report: porbeagle shark (Lamna nasus)
  • Published Date:
Filetype[PDF-2.22 MB]

  • Description:
    This status review report was conducted in response to two petitions to list the Porbeagle (Lamna nasus) under the Endangered Species Act (ESA) (petitioners: Humane Society of the United States on January 21, 2010; WildEarth Guardians on January 20, 2010). 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 Porbeagle. 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 Porbeagle 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 Porbeagle.
