  • History:

    Unfortunately, ocean sunfish are classified as a vulnerable species by the International Union for the Conservation of Nature. Sunfish are frequent victims of bycatch from drift gillnet fisheries, and there is little regulation in place to protect them. They are also seriously threatened by pollution, as floating plastic garbage bags resemble jellyfish which is their primary food source.
