    Abstract

    Commercially important fish species like groupers are facing severe threat from over-fishing, observed a global meeting of fisheries experts. The meeting of the Groupers and Wrasses Specialist Group, which is specialised in the valuable reef-associated groupers of the world, held in Azores, Portugal, observed that the population of many grouper fishes was declining due to overexploitation. The experts also pointed out that the practice of excessive juvenile fishing of the grouper species would worsen the situation in the Indian waters. Scientists have assessed the extinction risks of all the 164 grouper species - commercially important fishes for livelihood; source of food in many places across the world - under the guidance of the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) and the Food and Agricultural Organisation.
