Ocean lovers everywhere, we are at crisis point. The top predator species in the food chain of our oceans is being hunted to extinction. Some shark specie populations are estimated to have declined by over 99% since the 1970′s!
The repercussions for marine eco-systems are dramatic and have devastating consequences down the food chain. To name but one example, species of Rays and Skates can explode leading in turn to the shocking decline of shellfish fisheries and a rapid reduction in water quality. And that’s just for starters!
BECOME AWARE! BECOME AWARE!
I.. I had no idea. ;_;
Glad to see that shark week is clearly helping?
Shark fin soup just got even more painful to think about. But this has got to be mostly bycatch numbers?
This is so fucking painful to read.
