A disoriented angelshark rescued in the marina of Castillo-Caleta de Fuste.

The SEPRONA of Fuerteventura recovered, on the 16th, an angelshark that was hitting the stones of the marina of Castillo-Caleta de Fuste, the animal was disoriented, but without visible injury, in the municipality of Antigua.

The Civil Guard required the help of professional fishermen, managing to remove the specimen from the dock in apparently good conditions with proper handling and following the guide of good practices. All this, despite the difficulty presented by the obstacles of the marina, such as pontoons and poor visibility, as the Events occurred at night.

For all these reasons, the wildlife collection service (Gesplan) and the Environment agents of the Cabildo de Fuerteventura are informed of the finding, for their knowledge and to ensure fluid coordination between the institutions involved in the conservation of safeguarding the future of the Angelshark that is in critical danger.

The intervention had the collaboration of two professional fishermen and the security guard of the port facility.

It is a protected animal, which is listed as Critically Endangered in the Red List of Threatened Species of the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) and is also currently included in the List of Wild Species under Special Protection and in the Spanish Catalogue of Threatened Species as "in danger of extinction"
