The Bijagos Archipelago (Guinea Bissau, West-Africa) is a potential hotspot for endangered guitarfish species. However, their current population status remains unknown and recent observations indicate high fishing pressure on these species. In collaboration with local partners (IBAP), this project aims to set an evidence-based conservation agenda for these species by providing data on the current and historical regional population status of guitarfish using stakeholder involvement.
