The Northern coast of Somalia facing the Gulf of Aden is a hotspot of marine biodiversity. Gulper sharks which are a group of deep-water benthopelagic sharks with a worldwide distribution are among the routinely overfished in mid- and deep-water fisheries across Somalia's Gulf of Aden coast and some have shown a huge decline in their abundance. This research will look into the causes of the overfishing of gulper sharks along Somalia's Gulf of Aden coast.
