After the movie Jaws came out people thought it would be macho to go and hunt sharks. There would be killing tournaments to see who could get the biggest shark. The biggest shark that was ever caught was a 20 foot long great white shark. People are also overfishing sharks. There is a huge problem with finning for shark steaks or shark fin soup.
Another reason why sharks should be preserved is because they play a crucial role in the ecosystem in the ocean .There are many species of sharks throughout the ocean, and these sharks feed on a very diverse diet throughout the ocean. Sharks can feed on large game like seals, sea turtles and whales, depending on their size. Smaller sharks feed on things like small fish, crustaceans, and even other sharks.
But here some qualities that sharks do to help our planet. In fact Sharks keep the ocean food chain in check. They do this when sharks eat seals and it keeps the seal population normal, but if there were no sharks the seal would overtake fish and squid population until they would just go extinct. Another thing sharks do to help our planet is they hold cures for human diseases. They have special characteristics that could be turned into ingredients to help find cures.
Most importantly, think about the harmless whales. So, stand up and fight to put an end to
Sharks, dolphins, turtles, seals and seabirds all get tangled in these nets, as by-catch, with no way to get out. Some of the animals that are caught die, either while they’re being dragged along the bottom of the ocean or when the fishermen bring them on deck and don’t put them back fast enough. FAO experts assessment concluded that there are roughly 27 million tonnes of global by-catch for every 77 million tonne catch. This statistic means almost 1/3 of every catch is by-catch. Fish populations are on the decline, no thanks to carless fishermen and their pollution.
We can save them by going Scuba diving. We can also save Loggerhead Turtles from reckless drivers by Scuba diving because of the debris. My final way that we can save Loggerhead Turtles is by making them endangered. That is my ways of how to save Loggerhead
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?

This allows them to shoot and kill sharks greater than 3m in length that are found on the baited hooks placed on the traps known as “Drum lines”. Drum lines were placed along 7 popular Western Australian beaches between January and April. When there’s a ‘high hazard’ shark that is said to be near popular beaches authorities can kill the shark. Under the cull policy 170 sharks have been caught on the drum lines in Western Australia.
The many of people in Taiji have to pay the price for killing the dolphins’. The Cove, directed by Louie Psihoyos conveys a fair argument to put an end to the slaughtering in dolphins’ in the cove of Taiji, Japan and supports it with additional strong evidence.

The Japanese Sea lion in the 70s, and The Baiji Chinese River Dolphin in 2006 have been victim to our careless actions. Let’s not make sharks the next. World leaders, I am not here to just tell you about the demise of sharks, but to ask you to take action to halt their demise because this problem is on all our hands.

Ocean acidification is killing off the oyster population, which is also affecting the jobs in Washington. Initially, ocean acidification is when acidic gases are emitted into the air and absorbed into the ocean. According to the video Ocean Acidification by NOAA, ¼ of all the carbon dioxide release into the air is absorbed into the oceans. Some major contributors to carbon emissions are automobile gas and factory emissions. This is a problem in the Pacific Northwest because acid sinks to the bottom, but Pacific winds bring acidic water up from the bottom near the shore by the shellfish.
So before I start, how many people actually know what the vaquita is. Okay, not many. So, basically the vaquita is a rare, dolphin-like species of porpoise that has been critically endangered since 1975. It is a carnivorous heterotroph, so it only eats meat, and cannot make its own food. They primarily live in the Gulf of California and is the world’s most endangered marine animal.
Incredible beaches, marine life, and weather are just a few of the things that make the Florida Keys an amazing place. The Florida Keys are a string of islands located off the tip of Florida, which protrude out into the Gulf of Mexico and into the Atlantic Ocean. The oceanography of the Keys are unique because of several factors, including the geologic history, the tides and waves, and the effects of natural and man made threats to the Keys themselves and the thriving marine life. The map below shows the stretch of islands and the many reefs that are right off the coasts of the islands (Florida Keys Map) Geologic History Thought to have emerged from ancient coral reefs or patch reefs that had eroded, the Keys are a bit of a mystery in terms
