    Report of the Regional Workshop on the Identification of Deep-sea Cartilaginous Fishes of the Indian Ocean 2015

    The regional workshop “Identification of Deep-sea Cartilaginous Fishes of the Indian Ocean” was held in Albion, Mauritius, from 10 to 13 June 2014. It was attended by 19 participants from a wide range of countries and fields of expertise, including taxonomy and bioecology of cartilaginous fishes. The general objective of the workshop was to improve the capabilities of scientists from countries bordering the Indian Ocean to identify a range of deep-sea cartilaginous fish species caught in the reg ion. The participants were introduced to the anatomical features and taxonomy of the orders of deep-sea sharks occurring in the Indian Ocean, to the use of the taxonomic keys included in the reference text material (e.g. FAO catalogues and identification guides) and to the methodologies of processing and identifying a selection of specimens. In addition, a biological data collection protocol was illustrated, thus allowing for improved reporting of shark specimens.

    Identification Guide to the Deep-sea Cartilaginous Fishes of the Southeastern Pacific Ocean 2016
    Also available in:

    This fully illustrated guide is designed to assist with the identification of a selection of deep–sea cartilaginous fishes of the Southeastern Pacific Ocean (FAO Fishing Area 87), that are of major, moderate or minor importance to fisheries. In this region, the deep–sea chondrichthyan fauna is currently represented by 33 shark, 24 batoid and 9 chimaera species. This guide includes full species accounts for 23 shark, 6 batoid and 4 chimaera species selected as being the more difficult to identify and/or commonly caught. Each species is described, depicted with a colour illustration and photo, and key distinguishing features of similar–looking species occurring in the same area are highlighted allowing for easy and accurate identification in the field. Keys to the shark and batoid orders and families, together with keys to chimaera and skate genera are also provided. This guide is intended to help fishery workers collecting catch data in the field in the identification of the cartilagino us fish species they might encounter. It is conceived to be updatable, offering the possibility to add new species accounts as new species are described.

    This fully illustrated guide is designed to assist with the identification of a selection of deep–sea cartilaginous fishes of the Southeastern Atlantic Ocean and that portion of Southwestern Indian Ocean from 18°42’E to 30°00’E (FAO Fishing Area 47), that are of major, moderate or minor importance to fisheries. In this region, the deep–sea chondrichthyan fauna is currently represented by 50 shark, 20 batoid and 8 chimaera species. This guide includes full species accounts for 37 shark, 9 batoid and 4 chimaera species selected as being the more difficult to identify and/or commonly caught. Each species is described, depicted with a colour illustration and photo, and key distinguishing features of similar–looking species occurring in the same area are highlighted allowing for easy and accurate identification in the field. Keys to the shark and batoid orders and families, together with keys to chimaera and skate genera are also provided. This guide is intended to help fishery workers coll ecting catch data in the field in the identification of the cartilaginous fish species they might encounter. It is conceived to be updatable, offering the possibility to add new species accounts as new species are described.
