The population is estimated to be declining despite declining mortality rates. Forward projections under various scenarios imply that a further reduction of anthropogenic mortality of at least 50% is required to arrest population decline and avert extinction, regardless of the main source of the mortality, which is suspected to be fisheries bycatch and/or disease.
