Recovery Strategy for the Basking Shark (Cetorhinus maximus) in Canadian Pacific Waters

8. Additional Information Requirements about the Species

Knowledge of the Basking Shark globally, and the Pacific population in particular, is not yet adequate to clearly define population and distribution objectives or critical habitat. These knowledge gaps include information related to the distribution, biology, ecology and threats to the Pacific population of Basking Shark, and have been outlined in previous sections of this Recovery Strategy. No further information requirements, other than those previously discussed in this document, are identified at this time.
