European data


Additional information

  • Nearly 70 % of threatened marine mammals are impacted by over-exploitation (although indirectly, e.g. by-catch) (Temple et al., 2007).
  • Proportionately, threatened species (nearly 40 %) are impacted more than non-threatened species (just under 15 %) in reptiles, significantly more than in any other group.
  • At present, there is no European Fish Red list.
