shark finning: the act of slicing off the fins of sharks, while their (usually) still living bodies are tossed back into the ocean and left to die. here are 6 reasons why this horrific practice should be banned:
1. our most ancient species are now endangered. sharks have existed since before the dinosaurs and pre-date humans by hundreds of millions of years. a species who were once the kings and queens of natural selection are now facing extinction due to finning.
2. the soup isn't that good angway. shark fins are in fact tasteless. they add nothing but texture to this "prestigious" bowl of soup.
3. changing shark populations destabilize marine ecosystems. sharks are apex predators and play a major role as ecological stabilizers.
4. finning cashes in on cruelty. fins are worth up to $600 per pound. what happens when we overfish all of the sharks?
5. its a wasteful practice. usually, only the fins are saved while the rest of the shark's body is chucked overboard.
6. long-lining kills more than sharks. long-lines (also knows as the "curtain of death") are usually meant to catch tuna & swordfish, but they actually catch anything that goes for the bait, including endangered sharks, sea turtles, and seabirds.
long story short: not only is it a cruel and abusive practice, but it is completely unsustainable as well.

Australian government, the sharks belong in the ocean, not the tourists. this really annoys me. if i ever entered waters where i knew there was a risk of sharks been there and they attacked me, i would never want the sharks to be killed, it's their home! have some respect for sharks australian government!!!! source is @guardian

Jawsome info on sharks in the meat market! ๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿฆˆ #repost ใƒปใƒปใƒป
#tbt take me back to this. so fortunate to have gotten to know these amazing, misunderstood creatures. did you know that even if you never order shark’s fin soup, you and your pets might be unknowingly eating shark meat? shark meat is marketed under other names such as flake, whitefish, dogfish, rock salmon, surimi and cape steak. shark cartilage is also sold as a supposedly healthy pet treat. sharks bioaccumulate toxins and contain large amounts of heavy metals, which can cause dementia and other health problems, so eating them is really bad for our health. it’s also bad for the environment. shark populations have plummeted all over the world and this has important effects on other species such as rays and skates, which are no longer kept in check by these apex predators. their populations are exploding and in turn, they wipe out other species such as scallops and oysters.
we can help maintain healthy ocean ecosystems by asking questions about what we (and our pets) eat and being aware of the damage to both our bodies and the environment that our food choices cause. ๐Ÿฆˆ #savesharks .

Update: a fourth tiger shark has been caught on a baited drumline and killed in the whitsundays following two the two recent shark incidents.
_
words from: @alexkyddphoto they insist on killing sharks and saying its for public safety. there is no way of knowing which sharks were responsible and there is no proven science to say that culling sharks works.
shark scientist @thelifeofrileynz sums it perfectly in saying that we need to encourage actual risk mitigation policy instead of killing innocent wild animals. more education and more awareness when swimming in the ocean.
_
i’ve been swimming with tiger sharks regularly for the last 3 years in western australia. sometimes 2 or 3 individuals in a single day. the idea of randomly shooting these sharks days after an attack is barbaric. (here is an image i captured last week of a tiger shark around 4 metres in length.)

Following the pack with @oneoceandiving! ๐Ÿฆˆ i feel so peaceful in the ocean, and crazy enough, watching these curious sharks swim around us was actually so calming. it might sound crazy but i actually felt safer being away from the boat due to the slightly rough conditions that day. also, it’s important to respect wildlife as we enter their territory, and remember that this is their home. let’s help protect these gorgeous creatures and their home by reducing our use of plastic and other waste! โ™ป๏ธ ๐Ÿข๐ŸŒบ// ๐Ÿ“ท: @blakethompsonphoto #helpsavesharks #savetheocean

Late summer / early fall is when beautifully patterned leopard #sharks aggregate in the shallows of la jolla, #california. shallow as in as little as 6 feet of sea water. they frighten off easily and kick up sand while making their escape. these sharks dine on small crustaceans (shrimps and crabs). ๐Ÿฆˆ๐Ÿฆ€๐Ÿฆ
