Endangered Fish. What countries have the most endangered fish species? They're delicious, they're nutritious and some of them are listed as endangered species by the IUCN. Cod. Haddock. Grouper. They all have species that are endangered.

Frankly I had to do this list, because the results were so unexpected. Countries are ranked by the amount of endangered fish species they each have. Included are species classified by the IUCN as endangered, vulnerable, rare, indeterminate, out of danger, or insufficiently known.
