146 orcas have died in captivity, and 48 of those orcas have died at SeaWorld. The average person believes that orcas, also known as killer whales, are in captivity for their own well being, or to research their species, but that is false. Killer whales are tortured to do our bidding, for other people's entertainment and greediness. The orca trainers limit their food rations so that they become hungry enough to want the “food treat” after they do the tricks that are force upon them. Orcas do not belong in captivity, they belong in the ocean not in a tank.
During a study in March 2016 by Lauren Smith, a marine biologist who specializes in shark research, found two of the hammerhead species being traded were classified as endangered. This proves the trading market within China However, popular chain Fu Sing Shark Fin Seafood Restaurant owner Leung insists, “Why is it cruel to go for white shark and all other fish it’s not? What’s the difference?”. Given his position, he is meant to argue against the ethics behind killing a shark although he does have a reason. Animals are animals which is where his reason lies and is the reason animal equality should not be invoked.
Jaws had many production issues when it came to the building of the mechanical shark being used on the set in Martha Vineyard. Jaws was edited around the shark actually and you don't see the shark until halfway through the film. So, by not overusing the shark actually makes the film feel more realistic and a lot scarier.

1. With only 152 shark attack fatalities since 1580, you are more likely to be attacked and killed by many other things. According to the Florida Museum of Natural History you are more likely to be killed by an alligator, lightning, a tornado, sand, do it yourself projects, or bicycling. Believe it or not, you are also 33 times more likely to be killed by a dog. 2.
A big issue regarding the slow reproduction of sharks is that they cannot keep up with the pace of the fishing. They only reach reproductive age as late as 12-15 years, and combined with the fast pace they are disappearing they are not able to recover the population. As of now 74 shark species are listed as threathened, and 11 of them are critically endendegerd, on the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) Red List. 3. The price for shark fin soup To make the worlds most expensive soup, inhumane killing of sharks are happening at several places around the world, its not just focused around China.
Joshua Mejia 2013-82152 I Short Essay 1 According to Stephen Palumbi, that the whale meat we eat is not certainly whale meat but a dolphin meat. This dolphin meat contains toxins called PCB that dolphins acquire from small fishes, where these small fishes consume plankton that carries the said toxins. The poison is caused by pollution from run off and sewages. Palpably, this has caused enormous adverse health impact to us, as we are the primary consumers from the food chain pyramid, as previously described by Stephen. It may not be harmful in general public today but in a long run this will develop massive health alerts asserted by Charles Moore when he talked about the poor waste management that also results to marine disturbances and murdering marine life because of plastic materials floating at the surface of the water that traps a sea turtle, for instance.
Whale and Dolphin Conservation (WDC) is a non-profit organization that fights against the inhumane industry of captivity. They help free or at least help dolphins, orcas, and whales in situations like Keiko’s. They know that orcas are very intelligent and do not belong in captivity. They also fight against ocean pollution, whaling, bycatch, extinction, etc. If it weren’t for WDC, the north atlantic right whale (fewer than 460 remain) would be even closer to extinction (Closer), as would the vaquita porpoise (fewer than 100 individuals remain)
Introduction On this planet there are a handful of species that are at the top of the food chain, but which species are really at the top? Sharks and human beings both exist at the top of the food chain but both species of mammals find it difficult to coexist, more specifically in a hostile aquatic environment. Humans are known for hunting sharks in parts of the world like China, they are known for hunting for their fins and their meat and also sharks being carnivores with hunting and violence in their nature, they are driven to attack or eat any living species if it were to threaten them or come within their path when they are hungry or famish thus eating human beings as well. Sharks only attack humans when they invade or enter their natural habitat, which is the ocean or other massive bodies of seawater, because that is the only environment in which they can live. They attack humans when they: surfboard, dive, snorkel, swim, scuba dive etc.
