Mako sharks have an endangered status because of the same reasons other shark species have it, excessive human fishing, and hunting, either directly or bycatch.

In particular, Mako sharks are victims of an infamous practice called shark finning which consists of cutting off their fins while sharks are still alive and return them this way to the ocean being victims of predators or a slow death.
