They are classified in the IUCN Red List of threatened species as Vulnerable globally and Critically endangered in the Northeast Atlantic, meaning stocks around Europe have decreased by at least 95%. Despite these alarming figures, very few management or conservation measures are in place for Squalus acanthias.

Looks like a shark, hope you released it...
