CONGRATULATIONS, JOHN!

 

 

Establish Trade Bans of Manta Rays

PETITION:

http://www.thepetitionsite.com/1/establish-trade-bans-of-manta-rays/

 

  • Target: Western and Central Pacific Fisheries Commission- WCPFC, South West Indian Ocean Fisheries Project- SWIOFP
  • Sponsored by: Animal Advocates
  •  

     

    The destruction of manta and mobula ray populations are the result of demand for their gills. The gills are used as a "health tonic" to treat a wide range of aliments and the primary destination is driven by direct marketing in China. The gill raker remedy is not listed in the official Traditional Chinese Medicine manual, but it is still being used as a medicinal tonic, regardless.


    Intensive overfishing of mantas and mobulas for the trade in their gill rakers are driving mantas and mobulas to the point of population collapse. They could face regional extinctions because of unregulated fisheries. The trade in gill rakers continues in several ranges, with the largest landings documented in Sri Lanka, India, and Indonesia.


    There are devastating and rapid declines in populations in every area with active fisheries against the manta and mobula rays; they have already disappeared from The Sea of Cortez.

     

    Establish trade bans and sanctuaries for manta and mobula ray populations. Don't let these animals follow the same path to extinction as sharks face for their fins.

    Manta Ray

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Manta_ray

     

    The manta ray (Manta birostris) is the largest species of the rays in the family Myliobatidae. The largest known specimen was more than 7.6 metres (25 ft) across, with a weight of about 2,400 kilograms (5,300 lb). It ranges throughout waters of the world, typically around coral reefs. They have the largest brain-to-body ratio of the sharks, rays and skates (Elasmobranchii), a brain which is kept warm during lengthy dives to as deep as 500 metres (1,600 ft) in cold water. They are often described as "flying" through the water on their large "wings", and individuals have been observed to jump clear out of the water, possibly in a form of communication or play.

     

    DESCRIPTION

    Manta rays have a distinctive body shape with triangular ‘wings’ and paddle-like lobes extending in front of their mouths. The average disc width is 6.7 metres (22 ft) and the average weight is 1,300 kilograms (2,900 lb)  They are generally dark on the upper surface, ranging from black to greyish-blue and brown, with pale undersides; individuals have a unique pattern of blotches and scars that can be used to identify them. The large, cavernous mouth is situated at the front of the body and contains 18 rows of teeth on the lower jaw.

     

    Some ancestral characteristics degenerated due to the feeding change. For example, all that remains of the teeth is a small band of vestigial teeth on the lower jaw, almost hidden by the skin. The number and size of their dermal denticles are also reduced. Manta rays have a much thicker mucus body coating than other rays. Their spiracles are small and non-functional, as all water is consumed orally. Mantas have a tail similar to stingrays, but they have lost their stinger and are harmless to divers.

    THREATS

    Human influences such as fishing and use in Chinese medicines are severe threats to the manta ray population. Chinese are particularly interested in their gill rakers. Taking roughly 12 months for a female manta ray to give birth to a single pup it is no surprise that these creatures are extremely vulnerable to overfishing. Intense fishing pressures and growing international consumer demand caused populations to decline by 30 percent worldwide, with some regions experiencing an 80 percent decline over the last 75 years.

     

    CONSERVATION

    In 2011 Mantas became strictly protected in international waters thanks to its recent inclusion in the Convention on Migratory Species of Wild Animals -CMS. The CMS is an international treaty organization concerned with conserving migratory species and habitats on a global scale. Although individual nations already protected manta rays, it often migrates through unregulated waters, putting it at increased risk from overfishing.

     

    The International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) declared giant manta rays as ’vulnerable with an elevated risk of extinction’ in November 2011.

     

    The Manta Trust is a UK based charity dedicated to research and conservation efforts for manta rays. The organization's web site is also an information resource for manta conservation and biology.
