Oceana successfully pushed for the reinstatement of Brazil’s “Red List,” which ensures the protection of 475 species. After months of suspension, Oceana’s efforts led directly to the judicial decision that reestablished the Red List. The species protected under the list include sharks, rays, groupers and other marine and freshwater fish. Oceana will continue to campaign for scientific consultations to assess the state of the species on the list and the enforcement of the protective regulations.
