Abstract
  • The problem of extinction in the sea has been recognized only recently by the scientific community (Roberts and Hawkins 1999). For the last decade, the American Fisheries Society (AFS) has pursued an initiative to identify marine fish stocks that may be at risk of extinction in North America (Musick 1998; Coleman et al. 2000; Musick et al. 2000a; Musick et al. 2000b; Parker et al. 2000). The present paper presents the first recognized AFS list of marine, estuarine, and diadromous fishes that may be at risk of extinction in North America (exclusive of Pacific salmonids). The geographic scope of this review includes the coastal waters of Mexico, the continental United States, Alaska, and Canada. The objectives in preparing this list have been to identify stocks at risk at a sufficiently early stage of decline to avoid listing as threatened or endangered, minimize the probability of under- or overestimating the risk of extinction, use the best existing knowledge of stock dynamics at low population levels, and allow experts on stocks to bring to bear all the available knowledge about life history and conservation status in order to categorize risk of extinction.
