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

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.
