If it continues to go, then they might all become extinct. For example, also in "Air China Bans Transport of Shark Fins", it states the number of sharks killed every year just by humans. Humans are a bigger threat to sharks than they are to humans. Only a few out of over 400 species are actually a threat to human lives. Over 100 million sharks are murdered by humans every year, and it’s a high number for any animal but it’s endangering to sharks because they don’t breed very quickly due to their biological composition (NewsCurrents Read to Know).
National Geographic states that “Over 375 shark species have been identified, but only about a dozen are considered particularly dangerous. Three species are responsible for most human attacks: great white (Carcharodon carcharias), tiger (Galeocerdo Cuvier), and bull (Carcharhinus leucas) sharks”. Almost every recorded attack happened because of the shark’s curiosity, misidentification and plain human stupidity. During a shark breeding season, the
Furthermore, below 60-500 feet of the sea’s surface, the shrimp actually existing in deep water (Neff, 2002). Kumar and Achyutan (2007) reported that around a year old, the shrimp is snared by commercial trawlers and consumed by big fishes such as sea trout, redfish, bluefish and Spanish mackerel. However, only a few are survived to reproduce when there a sharp increase in the water column’s temperature that stimulated the females to spawn, hence producing thousands of eggs to begin the cycle again (Neff, 2002). In addition, Macrobrachium rosenbergii sp. can be distinguish from the other genus at the adult phase by comparing total body length, characteristic of rostrum, the tip of the telson, characteristic of chelipeds in male crustacean and moveable finger of adult male crustacean (New,
Even though Sea otter population was growing by the thousands each year, at this time, many hunters caught the sight of free game just floating at the surface and many people took this opportunity as easy money for most. People started to kill otters because of their furs, “ Pelts from sea otters are luxurious and very nice and fashionable for its time, especially during the winter” is what one hunter said that moved from Oregon to California to hunt sea otters. This trend could be found anywhere near the Pacific. Otter populations begin to dwindle every year by the hundreds due to lack of them already. By this time only around 50 otters escaped the slaughtering by moving south to the remote Sur coast.
Annual tolls because of sharks are much less than deaths resulted in meetings with crocodiles, tigers or elephants. Last two representatives of the huge terrestrial fauna kill around 100 people each year, while sharks have around five victims on their account. Meanwhile, tigers and elephants already had law protection, when the documentary was created, while sharks were treated as a source of valuable product (their fins) and a monster that should be killed before it would get an opportunity to attack. Numbers, mentioned by the film, created the impression the situation is totally unfair. As if officials today will forget about their efforts against the ivory black-market
It is no secret that humans have a large issue when it comes to plastic waste, as we produce over 300 million tons of plastic each year, with 50% used once and thrown away. But where does all of our plastic debris go once we discard of them in the trash? The answer, oftentimes, is the ocean. According to a UC Santa Barbara study, over 8 million tons of plastic is thrown into the ocean each year, and since 10% of our trash ends up in the ocean, 90% of which being plastic waste, it is estimated that 5 trillion pieces of plastic, weighing 250,000 tons, are floating in our oceans right now. However, when you visit your local beach, it is unlikely that you see mounds of trash washing ashore.
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.
As they usually hunt old, weak or sick prey, they help to keep the prey population in good condition, healthy and strong, enabling these more naturally fit animals to reproduce and pass on their genes. The effects of removing sharks from ocean ecosystems, although complex and rather unpredictable, are very likely to be ecologically and economically damaging. Here are some reason why killing sharks is very bad: 1)Sharks are being fished at a rate faster than they can recover. Due to overexploitation and lack of proper management, many shark species are under considerable risk of unrecoverable decline with some species having declined to near extinction in recent years. According to reports, sharks are being killed at an alarming rate of up to 273 million worldwide per year.
However, I caught a 42 inch shark in Florida (saltwater) which took me 20 minutes to reel in, and that is considered a small fish. They both have unique characteristics that make them completely different things. I’m going to prove that all fishing is not the same, saltwater and freshwater fishing are different sports based on dangerousness, cost, species, bait, and boat type. Most people assume fishing is a safe and easy hobby, however, fishing can actually be a dangerous activity. Saltwater fish have the potential to pull you into the water, bite you, or even sting you.
In addition, the technique that it used can spend less money on the product and make a high profits. And flavor and odor is two important part for people to determine whether a food is good or bad. However, in order to make a flavor more attractive, industries used the colored add and many chemical to make the food look much better, but it does not means this artificial is harmful to our body, and natural flavor is alway clean and unharmful. - A Few Too Many This essay is talking about the result and problem of hangover.
