Sharks Count and Why They Are Important For The Ecosystem ?

As the apex predators of the oceans, sharks keep our largest and most important ecosystem healthy. Our existence, in part, is dependent upon theirs. Remove sharks and that balance is seriously upset.

Around the world sharks are in big trouble, with over 90% of the world’s sharks wiped out through fishing, cruel shark fining and shark mitigation strategies. As a result, between 70 and 100 million sharks die a year. That’s over 10,000 every hour. Few know, often blinded by misguided fears, of the shark’s current struggles and the impact this could have on human life. Sharks are quickly headed for extinction.
