Opinion: Sharks need protection from people before it’s too late

Did you know that scientists know more about the moon than the ocean, and 12 people walked on the moon and only 3 people dived to the deepest part of the ocean? Scientists are now starting to learn more about the Earth’s oceans. The result is not good. It turns out we have caused more damage to the oceans than we thought. Many species of fish are in danger to be extinct. one of them is the shark. The main problem is shark finning. That means fishing the shark, cutting out the fins and throwing the body back in the sea. now, most countries are making shark fishing illegal.

I think that is a great idea because with out sharks, the ocean won’t be balanced, and there would be too much small fish in the sea. Sharks might be scary, but we are killing millions of them when they are killing tens of us in a year. Mostly they just mistake us as seals and fish or they were too hungry! If you don’t bother them, they won’t bother you. That’s why I want to save sharks.

  1. I think the goverment should put a shark detecter on the shore. Then it would protect peoples from sharks with alarms.

  2. I like how you said that we humans are killing millions of sharks a year, but they are only killing ten of us a year! I agree with you that we need to save sharks, and our oceans won’t be balanced without them!

  3. I think you are right about saving sharks, since if the sharks become extinct there prey might overgrow.

  4. I also think that its a very good idea to make fishing shark illegal because if sharks gets extinct, the food chain will get into a very big problem!

  5. Great job starting with a hook like a question. Your second paragraph shares your thoughts about the article thoughtfully, well-done.
