The South East Asian region contains extremely high shark and ray diversity but is also a global hotspot for shark and ray fisheries and trade. Unfortunately, there is limited elasmobranch specific research capacity. This workshop brings researchers, managers, and conservation practitioners from Malaysia, Indonesia, Thailand, the Philippines, Singapore, and Australia together to build regional capacity in shark and ray research and develop social capital to support future conservation efforts.
