Will Sharks go extinct?

Did you know that in may of 2008 a research study provided by the shark specialist groupsaid that 50% of oceanic sharks were threatened with extinction? Have you heard of shark fin soup? Well, you will learn about it and more about shark extinction!

This has been caused by a serious increase of fishing. To help this the government can try and safe guard these populations from being fished and killed. The international study was performed by 15 scientists in 13 different universities. Their results stated that 16 out of 21 sharks and ray species that are caught in high seas are at hieghtened risk of extinction. That is almost about 80% of sharks caught in high seas will be extinct! People try to catch these sharks to make money off their valuable fins and meat. Shark fin soup has also increased the demand for sharks. Most of the time a fish is caught and the person takes the scales and discards the body it is not recorded. This means that there might be even more dead sharks that have not yet been recorded.

Sharks run the risk of becoming over fished, and many might die due too the fact that Sharks take a long time to mature sexually have only a few offspring. Some of the things that the Shark specialist group recommends is to ensure and end to shark finning, the act of taking of the scales and discarding the shark's body in the water.the group also intends to improve the monitering of fisheries and enforcing science based catch limits for sharks.

How are some of the ways that sharks might go extinct?

Why do sharks take a long time to mature sextually?

Find an article that is related to sharks so that you can learn something new.

Nice post Rohit. You had really good questions. There were a few minor grammar and spelling mistakes, such as sexuality and add a link to your picture
