We need to act to stop uncontrolled shark fishing now; adopting effective management before crisis recovery plans are needed. The high seas can no longer be an out of sight out of mind wild frontier where anything goes. We could lose sharks from our seas within my lifetime, and that simply must not happen. Lose the sharks, the mighty, mysterious lords of the deep, and our planet's oceans would be infinitely poorer places.

More Shark Attacks? We Have Only Ourselves to Blame

Captain Paul Watson | Posted 17.04.2015 | UK
Captain Paul Watson

Shark attacks are on the rise and the reason for this is entirely the fault of humanity... We need to look at it from the point of view of the shark. The ocean is their home. We are stealing their food. We are trespassing on their territory and we savagely slaughter 75million sharks each year, much of which goes to make a soup that has absolutely no nutritional value. When we look into the eye of what we perceive to be a savage monster, we see the reflection of a much more destructive monster - ourselves.
