The decline in shark catches over the last two decades in Mexico prompted a series of management measures, including the restricted issuance of fishing licenses, gear regulations and closed seasons. Fishery management includes all shark species, but does not consider species-specific differences in life history, the regional seasonality of the target fisheries, or differences in the gear types that are used to target small or large sharks. We recommend the establishment of separate management measures for small and large shark fisheries because, in addition to differences in the biological productivity of the target species, these two fisheries differ in the type of gear used and the seasonality and region in which the fishing occurs.
