The Contenders: Page 3

41 They Help Eat the Rays

Rays love to eat Scallops and Sharks love to eat Rays. But if we killed all the Sharks, all the Rays will eventually wipe out all the Scallops. That's exactly what happened off the coast of North Carolina when Sharks were overfished. Now there's no more Scallops there. No more Scallops for the Rays to eat, and no more Scallops for us to eat.

42 They Help Eat the Sick, Injured Fish

If there were no Sharks around to eat the sick, and injured Fish, then schools of fish will eventually be thrown into chaos.

43 They're Older than Us

It's true. Sharks have been around before the Earth's first Dinosaurs. They've even been around before the Earth's first Trees!

44 They help Other Marine Animals eat Small Sea Creatures

If no Sharks were around, other Marine Animals would eventually get full and sick. They could die from overeating of Fish.

45 They keep ecosystems in balance
46 We shouldn't kill more sharks because the media depicts them as scary

A lot of people are scarred of Great White Sharks because they think they're merciless, killing machines just like the one depicted in Jaws. But in reality, Humans are not the preferred prey of the Great White Shark.
