Sharks Video


Marine Policy suggest that around 100 million sharks are killed every year by humans. This number might be vast beyond comprehension but the journal also recognises that it is a conservative estimate and it could by closer to 273 million killed each year. Taking the 100 million estimate, it works out at 11,416 sharks killed across the globe every single hour. (

Shark killing has to end because

…as apex predators, sharks play an important role in the ecosystem by maintaining the species below them in the food chain and serving as an indicator for ocean health. They help remove the weak and the sick as well as keeping the balance with competitors helping to ensure species diversity.

By taking sharks out of the coral reef ecosystem, the larger predatory fish, such as groupers, increase in abundance and feed on the herbivores. With less herbivores, macroalgae expands and coral can no longer compete, shifting the ecosystem to one of algae dominance, affecting the survival of the reef system. (
