    The sixth FAO Expert Advisory Panel for the Assessment of Proposals to Amend Appendices I and II of CITES Concerning Commercially-exploited Aquatic Species was held at FAO headquarters from 21 to 25 January 2019. The Panel was convened in response to the agreement by the twenty-fifth session of the FAO Committee on Fisheries (COFI) on the terms of reference for an expert advisory panel for assessment of proposals to the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora (CITES), and to the endorsement of the twenty-sixth session of COFI to convene the Panel for relevant proposals to future CITES Conference of the Parties. The objectives of the Panel were to: i. assess each proposal from a scientific perspective in accordance with the CITES biological listing criteria (Resolution Conf. 9.24 [Rev. CoP17]; ii. comment, as appropriate, on technical aspects of the proposal in relation to biology, ecology, trade and management issues, as well as, to the extent possible, the likely effectiveness for conservation. The Panel considered the following four proposals submitted to the eighteenth Conference of the Parties to CITES: • CoP18 Prop. 42. Proposal to include mako shark, Isurus oxyrinchus in Appendix II in accordance with Article II paragraph 2(a) and Isurus paucus in Appendix II in accordance with Article II paragraph 2(b). The FAO Expert Panel assessment of proposal 42. concluded that the available data do not provide evidence that the species meets the CITES Appendix II listing criteria. • CoP18 Prop. 43. Proposal to include blackchin guitarfish Glaucostegus cemiculus and the sharpnose guitarfish, Glaucostegus granulatus in Appendix II in accordance with Article II paragraph 2(a) and inclusion of all other giant guitarfish, Glaugostegus spp. in accordance with Article II paragraph 2(b). The FAO Expert Panel assessment of proposal 43. concluded that there was insufficient evidence to make a determination against the CITES criteria, recommending that CITES Parties take note of the one examples of extirpation, the widespread lack of management and the very high value of guitarfish fins in international trade. • CoP18 Prop. 44. Proposal to include white-spotted wedgefish, Rhynchobatus australiae and Rhynchobatus djiddensis in Appendix II in accordance with Article II paragraph 2(a). If listed, this would include Rhynchobatus cooki, Rhynchobatus immaculatus, Rhynchobatus laevis, Rhynchobatus luebberti, Rhynchobatus palpebratus, Rhynchobatus springeri, Rhynchorhina mauritaniensis, Rhina ancylostoma, and all other putative species of the Family Rhinidae (wedgefish) in Appendix II in accordance with Article II paragraph 2(b). The FAO Expert Panel assessment of proposal 44. concluded that there was insufficient evidence to make a determination against the CITES criteria, recommending that CITES Parties take note of the widespread lack of management and the very high value of wedgefish fins in international trade. • CoP18 Prop. 45. Proposal to include the subgenus Holothuria (Microthele): Holothuria fuscogilva, Holothuria nobilis and Holothuria whitmaei in Appendix II in accordance with Article II paragraph 2(a). The FAO Expert Panel assessment of proposal 45. concluded that the available data for Holothuria fuscogilva does not meet, there was insufficient evidence to make a determination for Holothuria nobilis and Holothuria whitmaei does meet the CITES Appendix II listing criteria. The Panel report includes an assessment of each of the four proposals following the objectives presented above, highlighting the Panel’s determination of whether information on the species in question meet the CITES Appendix criteria, and noting biology, ecology, trade and management issues, as well as, to the extent possible, the likely effectiveness of a listing for conservation.

    Le Groupe consultatif spécial d’experts chargé de l’évaluation des propositions d’amendement des Annexes I et II de la CITES, relatives aux espèces aquatiques faisant l’objet de commerce, s’est réuni au siège de la FAO du 13 au 16 juillet 2004. La convocation de cette réunion fait suite à l’adoption, par le Comité des pêches (COFI) à sa vingt-cinquième session, du mandat d’un Groupe consultatif spécial d’experts qui serait chargé d’évaluer les propositions soumises à la Convention sur le commerce international des espèces de faune et de flore sauvages menacées d’extinction (CITES); et à la recommandation du Sous-Comité du commerce du poisson du COFI, à sa neuvième session (Brême, Allemagne, février 2004), invitant la FAO à convoquer ce Groupe pour étudier les propositions qui seront soumises à la treizième session de la Conférence des Parties à la CITES (Cop-13) pour l’inscription sur les listes d’espèces faisant l’objet de commerce ou pour leur retrait de ces liste s, à temps pour permettre leur examen par la Conférence. Le Groupe avait pour mission: i) d’évaluer chaque proposition d’un point de vue scientifique conformément aux critères biologiques de la CITES pour l’inscription sur les listes, compte tenu des recommandations faites par la FAO à propos de ces critères; et ii) de faire des observations, selon qu’il conviendra, sur des aspects techniques de la proposition en rapport avec la biologie, l’écologie, le commerce et la gestion, ainsi qu e, autant que possible, sur l’efficacité probable de la conservation. Les quatre propositions suivantes ont été examinées: 1) CoP-13, Proposition 32: inscrire Carcharodon carcharias (requin blanc) à l'Annexe II avec une annotation mentionnant un quota d'exportation annuel zéro pour cette espèce; 2) CoP-13, Proposition 33: Inscrire Cheilinus undulatus (napoléon) à l'Annexe II, conformément à l'Article II, paragraphe 2 a), de la Convention; 3) CoP-13, Proposition 35: inscrire Lithophag a lithophaga (moule endolithe) à l’Annexe II ; et 4) CoP-13, Proposition 36: amender l’annotation à Helioporidae spp., Tubiporidae spp., Scleractinia spp., Milleporidae spp. et Stylasteridae spp. Les rapports d’évaluation préparés par le Groupe d’experts sur chacune de ces quatre propositions sont joints au présent document.
