On the track of missing shark species: our latest CIESM initiative succeeded beyond expectations, thanks to the participation of our broad community of researchers, in finding the recent tracks of five species of sharks which had not been reported for decades in Mediterranean waters. Ten shark species remain on our most wanted list. If you know of indisputable scientific evidence leading to a precise date and location of anyone of these 10 missing species (see, let us know and win one of our awards!!
The winners so far are Sofien Ben Abdelahmid (Tunisia), Mohamed Bradai (Tunisia), Chrysoula Gubili (Greece), Frane Madiraca (Croatia), Marie Luise Summer (Germany) and Inci Tuney (Turkey). Each gained a free registration package, including access and social events, to our 2019 CIESM Congress in Portugal.
