More bad news, the list of endangered fish just got longer.
Today the IUCN released their annual list of threatened species worldwide. The number of marine fish on the list is growing, including this lovely and vulnerable humphead wrasse.
“Marine species are proving to be just as much at risk of extinction as their land-based counterparts” said Craig Hilton-Taylor of the IUCN Red List Unit.
Sadly, these fish are out of sight & out of mind, but hopefully not yet out of time.
