Checklist of fish and invertebrates listed in the CITES appendices
The purpose of this publication is to provide a taxonomic list of fish and invertebrates included in Appendices I, 11 and III of the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora (CITES) together with their conservation status category in the 1994 lUCN Red List of Threatened Animals. Few invertebrates and a small proportion of fishes have received a status assessment
consequently the Red List contains only a small sample of the species from these groups that may in fact be threatened. This document incorporates additions and amendments to the CITES appendices up to and including those made at the 9th Meeting of the Conference of the Parties in Florida in November 1994 (effective from 16 February 1995).
