Sharks play a very important role in our oceans. Considered a top predator, they play various ecological roles in the marine environment. Sharks are known to control the population of fishes by preying on the injured or sick. Unfortunately, sharks are under serious threat, due to overfishing.

#DYK Malaysia is the second-largest importer of shark fins with an average of 2 million kg of fins per year between the period of 2000 to 2016!

How you can help:

🦈 Avoid shark fin soup, and other shark products unless it is clear that they are from sustainable sources.

🦈 If you are lucky enough to spot any sharks while snorkelling or diving, leave them alone and enjoy these magnificent creatures from far.

🦈 If any protected shark and ray species (refer to previous post) are found stranded on a beach or caught in a fishing net, please alert the nearest authority – Department of Fisheries Malaysia in Peninsular Malaysia or Sabah Fisheries Department and Sabah Wildlife Department in Sabah.
