Because of the limited observations for many species, bycatch was divided into eight broad taxonomic groups: eels (Anguilliformes), skates and rays (Batoidea), jacks (Carangidae), snappers (Lutjanidae), groupers and seabasses (Serranidae), all other fishes (Other Osteichthyes), invertebrates (Invertebrata), and sharks (Selachimorpha) (Table 1).
The majority of bycatch was made up of the Selachimorpha (of 94% of all bycatch groups) group (Table 1).
Within the Selachimorpha group, Atlantic sharpnose, Rhizoprionodon terraenovae; tiger, Galeocerdo cuvier; blacktip; sandbar, and blacknose, Carcharhinus acronotus, sharks represented the most commonly caught bycatch species (Table 1).
Year was a significant factor for the groups Selachimorpha, Serranidae, Batoidea, and Invertebrata (Table 2).
Their zoological class also includes the order Rajiformes (rays, mantas, and sawfish), and together they form the superorder Selachimorpha. They do not have scales like fish, but rough dermal denticles of the same origin as their teeth.
