    Several types of deep-sea fish, which are increasingly harvested as other fish stocks dwindle, are now endangered species according to IUCN criteria. Five species in the Canadian northwest Atlantic have declined dramatically over a 17-year period and are now critically endangered, probably because they take so long to mature and their numbers recover only slowly. This suggests that urgent action is needed for the sustainable management of deep-sea fisheries.
