The blue shark, Prionace glauca, is listed as "Near Threatened" by the World Conservation Union (IUCN).

Blue sharks are the most heavily fished sharks in the world, with estimates that between ten and twenty million are slaughtered every year. They are caught for their fins for shark fin soup, as “game” fish, and are frequently killed in incidental catch by commercial swordfish and tuna fisheries. Their flesh is not usually used for food, but turned into fishmeal, the liver for oil, and the skin for leather.
