Shark News | Issue 01 | April 2021

I am very happy to announce the publication of the first issue of the Shark News magazine today!

Shark News was the original IUCN Species Survival Commission (SSC)‘s Shark Specialist Group (SSG) newsletter published between 1994 and 2004. The new Shark News magazine has been reshaped into a modern quarterly magazine to also be used as an outreach and educational product.

I invite you to discover this first new issue of Shark News, and you can download it here:


I take this opportunity to thank my dad – Peter Scholl – for designing this new magazine, and donating his time, expertise and passion on this project! For both of us, it is a pleasure to work together again on this new magazine series, after working together creating 9 of the 10 issues of the Save Our Seas magazine between 2014 and 2019.

I also would like to thank the many contributors who have helped to shape the content of this first issue: Rima Jabado, Michelle Scott, Chelsea Stein, Jasmin Graham, Dean Grubbs, David Ebert, Marc Dando, Simon Weigmann, Andrea Kroetz, John Carlson, Daniel Fernando, Olivier Born, Muhammad Moazzam Khan, Fabrizio Serena, Monica Barone, Kennedy Osuka, Alexei Orlov, Nicholas Dulvy, Colin Simpfendorfer, and the IUCN SSC Shark Specialist Group (SSG) members.
