Introduction Of Sharks Infographic

Sharks are believed to have existed in the Ocean for more than 400 million years – before the first dinosaurs on Earth lived. They exist in every ocean in the world, and some species also inhabit rivers. Sharks grow slowly, mature late and rarely reproduce over a long life cycle, making them particularly vulnerable to overfishing and recovering slowly from depletion.

Unfortunately, there are over 100 million of sharks disappear each year as a result of destructive human fishing and climate damage. They are at the top of the food chain and are essential for maintaining the balance of marine ecosystems.
