Hundreds of sharks an hour get their fins cut off, every. single. one. It's also estimated that 100 million sharks have their fins viciously sliced off with knifes! It's outrageous! Sharks have a harder time repopulating as it is! Sharks are like sea turtles but with sharp teeth! After they slice their fins off, they let them go into the water even though they can't swim anymore!! Yeah, yeah, I know sharks have a bad reputation but sharks do have predators too! They are killed off by orcas in the oceans. (Not all the time but still isn't good for the population) There is an increasing drop in shark populations from the late 1900's. No! It's not just great white sharks that are being killed. Species of sharks like Whale sharks, hammerheads, hound sharks, tiger sharks, and so many more! These fins are being shipped off to restaurants and millions of dollars are being made off of trillions of lives. Do you know how crucial it is to have sharks in our oceans? And to think, we are already polluting the oceans with our "$1.00 chip bag" that you threw on the ground. That crap kills way more sea creatures than how much marine life that sharks kill-
Let me give you some examples-:
Again, sharks are in the upper region of the food chain- They help keep fish population under control- They kill the weak and sick fish, which without them, might harm us if those fish develop a DNA related disease.- (Hence, survival of the fittest)
Sharks also leave left overs for other fish to feed on! Which also, a big contribution to the ecosystem!
They also are carriers of carbon! They eat eels and starfish and spread nutrients!
Did you know, sharks could also help cure diseases! Yes! Have you ever seen a shark get sick? No? Well then get smart and think about this!
Without sharks coral reefs would die! The fish population would get so overwhelmingly large, that they would eat all of the oceans coral! Coral reefs are what keeps the ocean clean and keeps animals living! If those corals die off then the fish die off and if the fish die off, then we won't have fish to eat- and do you know how many animals eat fish??? Those animal eat the fish and drop their leavings and naturally fertilize the lands! Without fertile land we won't have crops! Without crops, cows, pigs, horses, sheep, etc will die! You know what happens if cattle and other meat producing animals die? Well, we won't have any fucking meat- aka your dogs, cats, snakes. They all die- Of course this won't all happen in our time but if we keep shoving things away and ignoring huge problems, we will be killed by our own greed-
(BTW the picture above this text shows a fin with a notch in it. Those notches are there because that sharks had currently been tagged-)
There is a thing called "Shark Protection" but at this rate sharks will probably go extinct in 2047- and the only sharks left would be found in zoos.
