Ecosystem

Sharks have always had a great number, but now the numbers have been decreasing rapidly because people have been hunting sharks for their fins and for soup. They don't get that sharks help the ecosystem keeping biotic things such as, coral ,seaweed ,fish and abiotic things such as sand, rocks, underwater caves, and sunken boats well . Without sharks, other fish will overpopulate and takeover the sea.

Pros and Cons

Pros & Cons of Hunting Sharks


Sharks get hunted for food. Pros of the hunting of this animal will keep their population will be level in the ocean and that’s what some people will eat. Some people think that the sharks population will be level, but they are wrong. Cons of hunting this animal is that this animal is in underpopulation with about 10,000,000 sharks getting killed every year and once they are gone, they are gone for good. That’s a bad thing because then all the fish will overpopulate and it will be hard to control them. Do you really want sharks to be dead just for your food?

Conclusion

Even though sharks could over populate people have been overkilling sharks and now they are an endangered species. Sharks have an important role in the ocean and without them other animals in the ocean will over populate. Other animals that need to be hunted by sharks are already starting to over populate and it will continue unless we stop hunting them. Sharks should not be hunted or other animals could starve or over populate.
