The family Nautilidae are found throughout tropical Asia Pacific region, but restricted to deep fore-reef slopes from 200–700 m in depth. Nautilus pompilius has the most widespread distribution, with other species having a more limited distribution.</br>The low productivity of nautilids (late maturity, long lifespan, low fecundity and slow growth with no larval phase) and the major decline (70−90 percent) in fishery independent CPUE recorded at locations where fishing has occurred for greater than 10 years, was determined by the Panel as meeting the criteria for CITES Appendix II listing. </br> <a href="">Read the <i>Report of the fifth FAO Expert Advisory Panel for the Assessment of Proposals to Amend Appendices I and II of CITES Concerning Commercially-exploited Aquatic Species, Rome, 6-10 June 2016.</i></a></p> See the complete series of Expert Panel Summary Proposals: <ul> <li><a href=""> Expert Panel Summary Proposal no. 42: Silky shark <i>Carcharhinus falciformis</i></a></li> <li><a href=""> Expert Panel Summary Proposal no. 43: Bigeye thresher shark <i>Alopias superciliosus </i></a></li> <li><a href=""> Expert Panel Summary Proposal no. 44: Sicklefin devil ray <i>Mobula tarapacana</i>; Spinetail devil ray <i>Mobula japonica</i></a></li> <li><a href=""> Expert Panel Summary Proposal no. 45: Raya <i>Potamotrygon motoro </i></a></li> <li><a href=""> Expert Panel Summary Proposal no. 46: Banggai cardinalfish <i>Pterapogon kauderni </i></a></li> <li><a href=""> Expert Panel Summary Proposal no. 47: Clarion angelfish <i>Holacanthus clarionensis</i></a></li> </ul>
