I legitimately struggle to find words to express how vehemently opposed I am to culling sharks.
My own moral/ecological issues with it aside, what a stupid way to "solve the problem". If you kill off 90 sharks near Reunion, more will move in to take advantage of the newly available resources. Might take some time, as they're not fast reproducers, but it's not like they're going to hold a tiger and bull shark summit out there in the Indian Ocean and decide that due to the human attacks on their brethren, they will cede those lovely resource-laden warm waters to the humans and move elsewhere.
People are dumb.

And I realized how my previous statement might've come off(about culling the human pop.), and I know there's no way to do it, I'm just hoping the planet does it for us.
This loss of revenue will eventually have an effect of the tax dollars (federal through local), which may hopefully cause discussion and maybe a revision of the MMPA of 1972, although the genie is out of the bottle in the sense of what do you do about the thousands of seals on Monomoy and the neighboring beaches and waters?? Maybe herd them onto a troop transport to Greenland?? A conundrum to say the least.
At least Mary Lee has been staying South and out to sea lately..

so up in MA... say they stop protecting the heck out of the seals... and the numbers decline... I say in the short turn.... potential for shark attacks go up. but over the long run shark populations would decrease to normal levels off that area of the atlantic.
but if they also start to cull, then the risk stays relative to the decrease of the seal population.
As for exactly how many sharks are out there... no one knows. there could be way more than conservationists claim or there could be less.
but we would be better off living in a moderation mindset when it comes to screwing around with nature.

Everybody doesn't get a trophy, kiddees, and the ocean is a a dangerous place. WTF, this generation of idiot humans is worse by every newborn, howling ball of fat defenseless pudge that gets dropped on the planet. Worse for the planet, worse for its own ind, much worse for other species.
The humans will eventually turn this planet into a wasteland. Fished out, lifeless oceans, denuded forests, destroyed soil where once was fertile land, and ghosts where once we shared the planet with creatures from songbirds to sharks.
We just f*** up everything we touch.

what we're doing does suck, but ashes to ashes, dust to dust. eventually, after people, it will be like we were never here.
where's archy on this thread? maybe he can post some NWO and illuminati videos about world population reduction conspiracy theory videos. that might cheer you up!
