This 2018 AEBR updates a 2014 expert assessment of the risk to all New Zealand chondrichthyan taxa (sharks, skates and rays) from commercial fishing. New data or reinterpretations have adjusted risk scores for a number of taxa, particularly of non-QMS species, with Plunket’s shark now considered the most at-risk shark. Of the 50 taxa considered in detail, the panel had low confidence in the risk scores for three of 11 QMS species, 26 of 36 non-QMS taxa and all three protected species.
