China has declared its giant paddlefish, dubbed 'the Panda of the Yangtze River' for its enormous size, extinct following decades of overfishing.

经过几十年的过度捕捞,因体型巨大而被称为“长江熊猫”的中国巨型白鲟被宣布灭绝。

According to scientists at the Yangtze River Fisheries Research Institute, Psephurus gladius, which can grow to 22 feet in length, went extinct between 2005 and 2010.

据长江水产研究所的科学家介绍,这种可以长到22英尺长的白鲟在2005年到2010年间灭绝了。

Extinction has been caused by overfishing since the 1970s and humans destroying their habitat. Pollution and urbanisation also played a role in their demise.

自20世纪70年代以来,由于过度捕捞和栖息地被人类破坏,导致了这一物种灭绝。污染和城市化也是导致其灭绝的原因。

There were only 210 sightings of 'the giant panda of the rivers' between 1981 and January 2003, when the last live specimen was found and released back into the river.

在1981年至2003年1月期间,仅210例白鲟目击事件。最后一次发现活体白鲟是在2003年1月。

'We estimated the timing of extinction to be by 2005, and no later than by 2010,' the researchers say in Science of the Total Environment.

研究人员在《总体环境科学》杂志上称:“我们估计该物种灭绝的时间是在2005年,最迟在2010年。”

The fish, which was around 10 feet long on average, was native to the Yangtze River, the longest river in Asia, along with a diverse selection of megafauna – large or giant animals.

这种鱼平均约10英尺长,原产于亚洲最长的河流——长江,长江还繁衍着种类繁多的巨型动物。

These include the Chinese Alligator, the Finless Porpoise and the Yangtze Sturgeon – two of which are classified as critically endangered on the IUCN Red List, while the porpoise is described as vulnerable.

其中包括扬子鳄、江豚和长江鲟——其中两种已被列入世界自然保护联盟(IUCN)红色名录的极度濒危物种,而江豚则被列为脆弱物种。

The team conducted a basin-wide survey between 2017 and 2018 and of the 332 fish species found, did not find a single live specimen of Chinese paddlefish.

该团队在2017年至2018年期间进行了一项全流域调查,在发现的332种鱼类中,没有发现一只活体白鲟。

The team reported another 140 historically reported fish species that were not found, most of which considered highly endangered.

研究小组还报告了140种历史上报道过但未发现的鱼类,其中大多数被认为是高度濒危的。

The ecosystem has been affected by human activity resulting in a loss of biodiversity, the result of which may also be the extinction of the Yangtze River Dolphin – which was declared extinct but later reportedly sighted in 2016.

生态系统受到人类活动的影响,导致了生物多样性的丧失,这也可能导致了长江白鲟的灭绝——长江白鲟已被宣布灭绝,但据报道在2016年曾有人目击过白鲟。

The Yangtze River was the most polluted in the world back in 2002. All down to raw sewage and untreated industrial chemical waste being dumped by the tonne daily. China is also the largest carbon dioxide emitter and they still dump CFCs into the atmosphere....

2002年,长江是世界上污染最严重的河流。每天都有一吨未经处理的污水和未经处理的工业化学废物倒入长江。中国也是最大的二氧化碳排放国,仍然向大气中排放氯氟烃…

In China being on an endangered species list just means that people will pay more for the rarity
