SHARE is a review of the current state of Atlantic shark fishery that may be used to develop future management measures.

As a comprehensive review of Atlantic shark fishery, the SHARE document identifies areas of success, concerns, and potential modifications to regulations and management measures in the future. The table below highlights the topics and areas analyzed.
