What If All Sharks Disappeared?

This is best what if question  to ask, Here we see what would happen if All Sharks Disappeared? This crazy what if thoughts will bring you new imagination world. Let starts Today's what if scenarios.

You're more likely to be killed by a toaster than a shark comments. Calum Brown, a biologist at Macquarie University, who was worried by shark attacks that have become more frequent.

In recent years. Statistics confirm his words, sharks killed less than one person a year on average, well, people in one way or another kill 3.17 sharks per second or 100 million annually, which is several times more than what's published in official UN data.(Another story on if Megalodon  sharks had never become extinct.)

While you watch this video, about 2000 sharks will die at such a pace. In just a couple hundred years, humans could completely destroy a creature that appeared on earth 400 million years ago, that is even before the dinosaurs.

What will our planet be like if this really happens, and is it worth worrying about? For most people, these predators are associated primarily

With the image of the great white shark from the movie Jaws, but what do we really know about them?

Surely not everything. Sharks to this day remain mysterious semi mythical creatures, particularly because it's expensive to research them. And it's only possible to study a few individuals at a time.

According to Dr. Daniel butcher, a marine ecologist at the University of the Southern Cross. Even after studying a sample of the same species of sharks, for example, leopard sharks, we can conclude that each of them behaves a little differently.

Because of this, it's difficult to distinguish between behavioral patterns and random behaviors with respect to the sharks. In fact, sharks are huge fish. They grow up to 30,000 teeth in their lifetime and can only swim forward. It's still unknown how they navigate the ocean. There's evidence that some sharks use geomagnetic navigator. That is they sense the Earth's magnetic field and are guided by it in addition to us accent, water temperature, Sound and Vision.

But what for example, do the white sharks see in the Atlantic Ocean at a depth of 900 meters or about 30,000 feet (9.14 kilometers) where they spend time every day?

Perhaps they sleep there. However, scientists still don't know whether sharks even sleep at all. And why do they migrate seasonally in search of food mating partners because of temperature? Or maybe for all three of these reasons? It's also unclear whether it's sharks stick to groups because they're attached to each other, or do they simply choose a suitable place with a good temperature and an abundance of food that is to what extent are they social?

Perhaps the sharks themselves would answer these questions if they could speak because they have one of the highest brain mass to body weight ratios among fish almost like birds and lower mammals. However, First you need to be able to identify that it is a shark in front of you since there are more than 400 different kinds of them have very different sizes from the school bus sized point and loving whale sharks to the palm sized pocket sharks.

The largest shark in history was the extinct megillah Donna reaching a length of up to 18 meters or 59 feet (17.98 m) and capable of swallowing a person hole and researchers are still discovering new species. For example, the ninja shark was announced to the scientific world in 2015. And a new type of walking shark hit the newspapers in 2013.

Such fights happen all over because sharks have evolved over time to inhabit rivers and lakes and are now found in ecosystems around the world, including the shallow waters of mangroves, tropical coral reefs, cold arctic waters, and of course the open ocean but in fact, half of them are A Hundred and One species today are threatened with extinction, which is a worldwide problem as they grow slowly mature late and have relatively low breeding rates. Some die due to the destruction of their habitats by humans.

Others are hunted for their meat skin fat from the liver and cartilage because shark fishing is one of the oldest trades in the world. But 70% of shark fishing is for its most valuable part, the fins during this barbaric procedure, the fins are cut off from the still living shark, and they're thrown back into the water where the shark now incapable of swimming dies of blood loss or suffocates due to damage to its gills or it becomes the prey of other predators.

The fins which make up only between one to 5% of the sharks weight in a boat much easier than the whole carcass and become part of the black market a multi billion dollar business, which is also one of the most closed in little known businesses, fins can cost up to $1,100 per kilogram that's about $500 per pound.

The harvesters on the other hand get just 2.2 dollars per kilogram, or about $1 per pound. In other words, less than 1% of the final cost. Individual whale shark fins cost about $15,000 a piece of popular soup is caught using these fins which according to popular belief has medicinal properties as a result. Over the past decades, the number of reef sharks alone has decreased from an average of 6.68 sharks per 500 cubic meters on the reef in 1997.

To just 0.03 sharks in 2016. It's impossible to accurate Calculate the consequences of the disappearance of all the sharks in the world, but the forecasts are not comforting. The first of them is chaos, which will bring into its ranks sick and wounded fish, which are usually eaten by the orderliness of the ocean. But the matter is not only watch sharks eat. Sometimes their very presence affects the feeding habits and behavior of other marine animals. For example, Tiger Sharks living among seaweed, scare away turtles and prevent them from over consuming vegetation.

When they're gone. The initial links of food chains will disappear first, as happened off the coast of North Carolina, where there are no more scallops for stingrays to feed on, which in turn served as food for hammerhead sharks. Next, it will be the skates who disappear.

Coral reefs will suffer in the absence of sharks where the so-called liberation of The missile predators will occur that is the number of smaller predator fish such as snappers and emperors will increase by many times, but the populations of herbivorous fish that feed on algae will decrease and the overgrowth of algae will suppress young corals and deprive them of the ability to photosynthesize and recover from the damage of cyclones and discoloration. Ultimately, the reef will die and eventually turned into simple limestone.

Oxygen production will be disrupted more than half of which sharks are responsible for because they control the number of fish that feed on oxygen producing plankton reduction or disappearance of these plankton will lead to an increase in the amount of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere and consequently to global warming and climate change. Sharks are also food for other marine predators. Dead great white sharks, they've had been found missing their livers on South African beaches were thought to be the victims of killer whale attacks.

But then a video appeared of a catfish shark at the bottom of the Atlantic swallowing holes sea bass. According to National Geographic, even octopuses feed on sharks. Another source of nutrition for other organisms is the excretions of sharks. Us schools of grey reef sharks between coastal waters and the deep waters of the palmira coral archipelago in the Pacific Ocean, bring the reef more than 95 kilograms, or 200 pounds (90.72 kilogram) of nitrogen per day.

That is, according to marine biologist Melissa Marquez. Therefore, without sharks, food chains will collapse and cause the decline of the commercial fishing industry. As a result, millions of people will lose their main source of income alone. Sharks, the $90 billion fishing industry will disappear. This will also have a negative effect on medicine as scientists use information learned about sharks to help diagnose, understand and treat many human diseases and solve problems including the possibility of corneal transplantation. From sharks to humans.

The source of inspiration for bionics which imitates designs from nature to solve, human problems will be lost. For example, the scales of large white sharks swimming at speeds of up to 39 kilometers or 24 miles per hour (38.62 kilometers per hour), encourage scientists to create swimwear with improved hydrodynamic properties. A device resembling a shark's tail was designed to capture the energy of waves from the ocean and converted into electricity.

To summarize, sharks are incredibly important to the ecosystem and for all of humanity as is becoming clearer, officials are beginning to protect them at different levels. For example, all sharks caught in the waters of the USA must be brought ashore hole with fins. And in China shark fin soup is now prohibited. One of the most promising areas is eco tourism, which according to forecast couldn't generate more profits than global shark fishing.

It's been estimated that a live shark brings about $1.6 million. While a dead one brings only 200 bucks. President Palau has declared his island nation a shark paradise and killing a shark can now bring a fine of up to $2 million. Thus, a variety of approaches could be the key to solving the problem.
What do you think about this is shark fin soup worth the balance of life on earth? Do you wonder What Will Animals On Earth Be Like In 1,000 Years From Now, this is another story.
