UK wildlife trade report: an analysis of trade in CITES specimens (2012-16) 2019

Freshwater Marine Terrestrial CITES JNCC Publications 0963-8091 European International JNCC report series Species Species Status 626

Abstract

This report provides a detailed analysis of trade in CITES-listed taxa to and from the United Kingdom undertaken, in part, to inform the UK’s preparations for leaving the European Union.

####Summary

The report includes an analysis of imports into, and exports from the UK, and includes an estimate of the value of this trade. It is anticipated that this report will set a baseline against which future patterns of trade to and from the UK can be assessed.

This report was originally published in January 2019 and then re-published in June 2019 following revisions to correct the estimated value of coral imports into the UK which were, originally, over-estimated. Details of, and an explanation for, the changes made are available from JNCC.
