Recovery Strategy for the Basking Shark (Cetorhinus maximus) in Canadian Pacific Waters [Final Version]

Appendix A: Effects on the Environment and Other Species

Measures to protect Basking Sharks and habitat from effect of threats will likely have positive benefits for the protection of other marine species and their habitats. Further, efforts to promote recovery of this species (e.g., the creation of a Basking Shark Sightings Network) and to identify critical habitat will likely result in increased data on other shark and marine mammal species and on oceanographic processes.
