IUCN SSC Shark Specialist Group (SSG)

The Shark Specialist Group (SSG) operates under the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) Species Survival Commission (SSC). The SSC established the IUCN SSC Shark Specialist Group (SSG) in 1991 in response to growing awareness and concern of the severe impact of fisheries on shark, ray, and chimaera populations around the world. The SSG is recognised as the leading global authority on the status of sharks, rays, and chimaeras.

The Shark Specialist Group (SSG) vision is a world where sharks, rays and chimaeras are valued and managed sustainably. Our mission is to secure the conservation, management and, where necessary, the recovery of the world’s sharks, rays, and chimaeras by mobilising technical and scientific expertise to provide the knowledge that enables action. This action is directly linked to policy, political decisions, and public engagement; hence, understanding their scientific communication plays a vital role in the application and success of these actions.
