25 EXTINCTION RISK IN THE SEA relatively few known marine species risk extinction Why would marine species be different?
26 EXTINCTION RISK IN THE SEA Range and depth buffers them from extinction marine fish are resilient to extinction risk as economic extinction will precede biological extinction Doesn t consider subsidies, ecological extinction, increase value with rarity and multispecies nature of fisheries
