Joint Comment - WCS + Oceans North Letter to Canada re: CITES CoP19 Shark Proposal - July 2022

The addition of the requiem and hammerhead shark and guitarfish ray family-level listing proposals would, when combined with the Appendix II shark and ray listings adopted at the past three CoPs, help ensure that only legal, sustainable trade in sharks and rays can continue.
