The shark represents man vs nature throughout the whole story up until the end. From the very beginning of both the film and novel, it starts off looking through the shark’s perspective. The novel’s intro gives some exposition about sharks, including one important definition about anoxia: “Once, if ever, it stopped, it would sink to the bottom of the ocean and die of anoxia” (Benchley 3). This definition not only acts as exposition, but also foreshadows how the shark eventually dies in the end of the novel. After the expository phase of both the movie and novel, the shark attacks its first victim--a drunk woman named Crissy.

Jaws (Spielberg, 1975) follows the police chief Brody (Rob Schneider), along with oceanographer Hooper (Richard Dreyfuss) and shark hunter Quint (Robert Shaw), in their attempt to protect the town of Amity against a Great White shark that is terrorising beachgoers.

The production of Jaws went past schedule and over budget, and there were malfunctions with the prosthetic sharks that were intended to be used in the film. As a result of this, Spielberg decided to only suggest the appearance of the shark as often as possible, as opposed to showing the prosthetic body during all attacks. This sparing use of the prosthetics, and primary focus instead on creating suspense and dread

Sharks have the task of killing the wounded, old, and sick fish in schools to keep the stocks of fish healthy and plentiful. Andy Dehart, Discovery Channel Shark Advisor, spoke about the North Carolina shark over fishing problem. The shark populations on the East Coast were extremely over-fished which lead to the over population of sting rays, a main food-stock for sharks. The stingrays in turn decimated the shellfish populations on the East Coast, leading to calm and shellfish shortages. This shows that sharks are necessary for every eco-system and their destruction affects us in more ways then we can imagine.
