Over the past few decades, concerns have been raised about the negative impact of overfishing on many marine species and their natural habitats. As a result, many fish species are now considered seriously endangered and are becoming increasingly rare.
- Giant Sea
Bass or giant sea bass has been in abundance of fish off the coast of California and Baja, Mexico, but almost overfishing has been on the verge of extinction in the past few decades.
With the help of strong conservation efforts, the giant sea bass is believed to be returning. As the name suggests, a giant sea bass fish is a huge fish that can grow up to a size of 600 lbs (272.16 kg) in size.
The giant is also the largest carnivores in the kelp forests in Southern California. In the past, giant sea bass was more common, but they were easily caught because they liked to assemble in large groups. During the summer of 2018, scientists from the University of California at Santa Barbara and the Pacific Aquarium confirmed that a number of giants were living in Avalon's Casino Dive Park, a popular scuba diving place.
- Adriatic Sturgeon
In the past, the Adriatic sturgeon was more widespread and abundant in the Adriatic Sea. However, overfishing over the past several decades has destroyed the Sturgeon Adriatic and there may be fewer than 250 fish left.
According to the IUCN Red List, Adriatic has already become extinct in many of its former habitats. Since 1988, sturgeon Adriatic has been successfully reared in fish farms, and species are constantly restocked in Italy.
Unfortunately, there is no evidence that these released fish breed. There have been no records of Adriatic spawning in its usual areas for the past 15 years.
- kissing grammy
They can be found in three small and isolated areas of Japan. Currently, the only reason for the non-extinction of Loach kissing is due to intensive human intervention and conservation efforts. According to the IUCN Red List, Loach's kissing is about to be considered extinct but is currently classified as an endangered species.
- Sawfish Small Tooth
|Sawfish Small Tooth
Sawfish Small Tooth is an interesting fish, whose name derives from the length of the saw like a hose. Although they resemble sharks, the small sawfish are associated with rays, which are cartilage fish. In the past, the Small Tooth fish was significantly more abundant in tropical and subtropical waters in the western and eastern Atlantic. Today, the sawfish can only be found reliably off the coast of Florida and near the various islands in the Bahamas.
According to the IUCN red list, the small sawfish is likely to be extinct in a large number of its previously known habitats. More than 95% of the small sawfish is believed to have been eradicated since 1962. Many fish are still caught in networks dedicated to other fish.
- European Sturgeon
In the European sturgeon sea, also known as Atlantic Sturgeon (not to be confused with other Atlantic sturgeon), only a rare fish is found in the Jaron River in France. Historically, the European Sea sturgeon was a much larger group than the North Sea, the Baltic Sea, the English Channel, the European Atlantic coasts, the northern Mediterranean west of Rhodes, and the western and southern Black Sea. European sturgeon was also reported lying near Algeria, Morocco, and Tunisia.
Today, there are only about 20-750 European sea sturgeon.
- Red handfish
Red Handfish is a strange fish that uses hand-like fins to move across the ocean floor. The Red Handfish was first discovered in the 19th century and always had a small number until early 2018, it was known that only one group consisted of about 20-40 Red Handfish living in Frederick Henry's Bay in Hobart off the coast of eastern Tasmania.
In early 2018, a research team from the Institute of Marine and Antarctic Studies at the University of Tasmania discovered a second set of Red Handfish. This new discovery brings the estimated number of red fishing to about 80. Dangerously endangered Red Handfish and their numbers are very low because their eggs, which they place on the bottom of seaweed, are often mistaken when people or other marine organisms pass through seaweed.
- Ray's ornate sleeper fish
|Ray's ornate sleeper fish
Although they may not look like typical fish, rays are a special type of cartilage fish, and the ornate ray beam is one of the most amazing rays out there. Two types of samples were taken between 1984 and 2004. Since the ornate sleeper ray beam is rarely seen and none of them are found, it is the rarest fish in the world.
Ray's ornate sleeper beam was first discovered and photographed in 1984 and was immediately identified as an unknown type of radiation. Subsequently, a few illuminated sleeper ray sightings were reported and two samples were finally captured in 2003. A few years later, the ornate sleeper ray beam was finally accepted as a new race and types of rays in 2007.
- Tequila Splitfin
Tequila splitfin is a small fish found only in a small pond in Rio Teuchitlan and Mexico. Scientists believe that tequila splitfin is extinct because collection efforts since 1992 have not shown any samples. However, Tequila Splitfins was discovered in 2005.
It is estimated that there may be only about 500 split-in tequila, with only 50 adult fish, in this remaining group. At the University of Michoacán de San Nicolas de Hidalgo, they breed several species of endangered fish, including tequila splitfin. In 2017, environmentalists released about 700 tequila splitfins again, and they hope that other species will be able to recover.
- Sakhalin Sturgeon
Sturgeon sakhalin is so rare that it is rarely seen or caught. According to the IUCN Red List, Sturgeon Sakhalin was not a thick fish, but was commonly found for sale on markets in Hokkaido, Japan in the 1950s. Since then, the number of wild sturgeon sakhalinhas has dropped sharply. The total number of remaining sturgeon sakhalinis is unknown, but it is estimated that about 10-30 are dispersed in the River Tomenin annually.
A few samples were captured in 2005 and 2008 and used to try to create captive breeding. Poaching during the migration of Sturgeon sakhalin to breed ing is the greatest threat to species survival. The IUCN Red List predicts that sturgeon sakhalin will be extinct within the next 10 to 15 years.
