Species that produce very few young each year, such as many sharks, seem to be particularly susceptible, although the converse is not true: high fecundity does not necessarily make species less vulnerable, and hence more resilient, to fishing (see later). Many deep-sea species that live in cold, food-poor, environments and have slow growth and reproduction rates are especially vulnerable when concentrated in specific habitats, such as seamounts, that are a focus of fisheries. Other potential risk factors are small geographic range, endemism and habitat specializations.
