Pelagic sharks protection as a priority

According to the latest data, it turned out that sharks that live in the open ocean are forced to share their territories with fishermen and die at their hands.

As scientists have found, industrial operations occupy almost a quarter of the territory inhabited by pelagic sharks. Industrial lines can reach 100 kilometers in width or height, moreover, they are equipped with hundreds of hooks from which marine inhabitants perish. Fishing practice is the most common pelagic sharks killing practice.

Pelagic sharks usually live in open waters and a large number of species migrate each year to great distances from their habitat.

Unfortunately, due to disappointing results, sharks have very few chances to find a good refuge from fishing, therefore some researchers have suggested creating a protected area around sharks inhabited underwater areas.

This proposal has found tremendous support because pelagic sharks are considered endangered. The most common types are:

1) The porbeagle (Lamna nasus);

2) mako shark (Isurus oxyrinchus);

3) white shark (Carcharodon carcharias);

4) blue shark (Prionace glauca).

The problem of poaching was and remains the biggest and most dangerous problem of mankind. Let’s start to appreciate all living things and then you will live.
