Sharks Are Under Threat
Sharks have roamed the oceans since before the time of dinosaurs, but their long reign at the top of the ocean food chain is imperiled. The onset of industrial fishing over the past 60 years has drastically depleted their populations. Of the shark and ray species assessed by scientists for the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN), 30 percent are threatened or near threatened with extinction.
