Channel Islands Endangered Species

The IUCN Red List of Threatened Species™ for the Channel Islands (particularly Guernsey and Jersey islands and bailiwicks) in Northwestern Europe lists only one critically endangered species, no endangered species, and five vulnerable species. The European Eel is critically endangered in the Channel Islands and dozens of other places in and around Europe. The following species are considered vulnerable to environmental and human-based threats but are not quite endangered yet: the Atlantic Cod fish, Atlantic Horse Mackerel (Common Scad) fish, Filefish (Gray Triggerfish), Headfish (Ocean Sunfish), and Opisthoteuthis calypso octopus.
