Are great white sharks endangered? Yes the great white shark is endangered by the fact of overfishing. Having 100 million killed each year. Along with Blue-fin tuna, Chilean sea bass, hoki, orange roughy ect.
Carcharodon carcharias also known as the great white shark, is a specie that is still a big mystery in the ocean. Mostly everyone sees the great white as a predictor, others see it as friendly big fish. To this day we really do not know a lot about the great white shark.
Shark attacks have been around for a long time, but have also the numbers have gone up and down the past years.
the population as gone down dramatically from the years of 1950's to 2010, researchers say that the great white shark is on a rise again. After a long period of time, we should not be surprised if we see more sharks and other sea animals population growing aging.
Sharks are much older than dinosaurs. Their ancestry dates back more than 400 million years, and they are one of evolution’s greatest success stories. These animals are uniquely adapted to their ocean environment with six highly refined senses of smell, hearing, touch, taste, sight, and even electromagnetism.
A baby shark is born along withe a dozen of siblings. One cool fact is baby sharks are on their own the moment they come out of their mother. most baby sharks don't even make it their first year.
summary- the great white is pone of a kind, but its also vulnerable to be extinct because its being used for soup and by catch, sustainability- this sharks is a species that is on the raise but is still coming down because of by catch connection- this type of shark relates to the killer whale because both are predators they are both on top of the food chain they are both used in by catch ect.
Summary-Sharks, slow to reproduce, cannot sustain the massive fishing pressures they are under. In 2009, the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) reported over 1/3 of all shark species are threatened with extinction. Sustainability- Many of the species commonly utilized in shark products are considered endangered, vulnerable or near threatened and often are obtained illegally. A large percentage of shark fishing around the world is illegal and supports a ruthless black market. Consumption of shark fin (and profit for its black market trade) is at an all time high – the trade is global and underground. Over the last 30 years, the number of people eating shark's fin has risen from a few million in the 1980’s to more than 300 million today. Connections-Research indicates that each year, the fins of up to 73 million sharks are harvested and sold, mostly for shark fin soup. A large percentage of these fins come from open ocean sharks like the blue shark, shortfin mako, silky, bull hammerhead and thresher sharks. To obtain fins, fishermen often engage in sharkfinning at sea. Finning is a brutal process that involves slicing the fins off a live shark then throwing the shark back into the ocean to die.
stop letting ships fish so often, also some areas should have a no fishing zone. there should be a limit to how much fish you can catch in a day.
one good solutions for the great white is to have like an SOS ship for sharks and other animals because ships from other countries are using shark and other fish as food. We can put a stop to this with others helping as well.
The great white shark is a very vulnerable fish. But if we and others put a stop on by catch and over fishing we can the population of the great white come back plus other fish as well.
