Although I completely abhor the practice of "De-Finning Sharks", and I find it to be a complete and utter act of abuse and torture, I dare say that
the World's Shark Populations are FAR from disappearing.
I travel to Florida and the Bahamas often, and as an accomplished individual of both Surface, and Undersea activities, I dare say that the sharks in
this Tropical Caribbean/Atlantic Region have been exploding in Population. As a matter of fact, many Marine Biologists have stated that if anything is
being decimated, it is rather the Shark's Natural Prey of certain Fish Species, and many of the Shark attacks are a result of Inland progression due
to this very factor.
I do agree however, as every Animal Species, as well as Mankind, has its rightful and duty bound place amongst the Earth's Ecosystem.
