Top 3 Reasons Why Sharks are Nearing Extinction

Education,Public Speaking,Environment
When it comes to animals, extinction danger plays a big role in whether a specie will be subject to protection or not. For the most part, animals are considered food for humans, as they are situated at the pinnacle of the food chain. Most of the time, humans demand more than what can be considered as normal, and it upsets the balance of the symbiotic system all things on earth need to survive. Even animals that are feared or are considered dangerous have their own role to play in the ecologic cycle. Sharks, for instance, will most often strike fear into the hearts of most, but they, too, are in need of protection, as due to excessive and irresponsible fishing and the industrialization of their natural habitat, they are now nearing extinction. Save the Fins, Save the Sharks

It is surprising that this feared predator of the deep is hunted primarily for food. Shark’s fin is a delicacy in many cultures, and is used in many Asian dishes such as soups and dumplings. The meat in the shark’s fin does not have any special flavour in itself, but as it acts like a sponge, it soaks up the flavors of whatever ingredients are used alongside the dish, marrying them all beautifully. This special property, along with its soft texture, is the reason that shark’s fins are much sought after, and is also the cause for the blatant overfishing of them.

The disheartening reality is that aside from their fins, humans do not desire anything more from them. Shark meat is unpalatable for humans, and their skin are rough, like sandpaper, to be of any use. Most shark fishermen just clip off the fins and let their catch go, leaving them in the ocean to die. Oops—My Mistake

Sharks also oftentimes get caught when they are not to be caught. As sharks are considered as apex predators—meaning, just like humans, they are on top of the food chain in their underwater realm—fishing for their prey can sometimes lead to accidental fishing of sharks, as well. There have been countless accounts of fishing vessels out to catch bill fish and tuna that have accidentally caught sharks along the way. One thing about sharks is that they need to be in constant motion. Sharks are always moving in the water, because that is how they breathe. If a shark gets caught in a net and ends up not being able to move for more than 5 minutes, it could die. This is what happens in by-catch, or the accidental catching of unwanted specie. Left without a Home

Sadly, industrialization comes with a price. The more people tamper with nature to modernize it, the more do these creatures lose their homes. Pollution, industrialization, and climate change are but a few of the reasons why sharks are losing their homes, and without a habitat to thrive in, sharks will stop to thrive and dwindle to extinction. Sharks Need Angels, Too

Even with sharks, like all animals, extinction danger is a major threat. Sharks are an essential part of the ecosystem, and several human actions are making them suffer. It is high time to put a stop to shark exploitation. Sharks need angels, too, and they need them now.
