New advances in technology have allowed scientists to learn a great deal about sharks. One thing that is abundantly clear is that sharks are not the mindless monsters of the deep they were once thought to be. On very rare occasions, sharks have bitten humans, sometimes with tragic results. Around the globe, there are fewer than 100 shark bites per year. Of these, on average six are fatal. Most of these are cases of mstaken identity as there is not a single shark species that has humans as part of its diet. The same cannot be said for sharks as part of the human diet. More than 70 million sharks are killed each year, primarily for their fins, which are used in shark fin soup. A bowl of this soup can sell for up to $200. The value of these fins is leading to incredible fishing pressue on these amazing animals. Although many species of sharks have healthy populations, others are in rapid decline. Sharks are not mindless monsters and are far smarter than most people realize and are able to learn behaviors such as swimming to targets for food and learning to roll over for veterinary procedures. Whether you're fascinated or fearful about sharks, the fact remains they need our help to survive. This book also identifies the many organizations committed to helping save sharks. Learn more, get involved, and help these amazing animals for their survival and for the role they play in the health of the world's oceans, and the world's oceans play a huge role in human survival. Read more about sharks, their roles in the survival of the sea, and find more than 250 fantastic, awesome photographs inside.
