As apex predators, sharks take a long time to reach reproductive age and don't reproduce very quickly, which means they can't replace themselves fast enough to counter how many are killed. Over half of all shark and ray species that have been assessed by the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) are classified as threatened or near threatened.
