Data collection on sharks and rays by species in Malaysia was the outcome of ‘the Regional Technical Working Group on Data Collection for Sharks in Southeast Asia’ held in Phuket, Thailand on 22 – 24 April 2014. The project aimed to enhance human resource development in elasmobranch taxonomy, to increase awareness on conservation, to improve landings data recording from generic ‘sharks’ and ‘rays’ to species level and as a preparation for Malaysia to conduct Non-detriment Findings (NDFs) study for the sharks and rays in the future.
