I have previously discussed on my blog the fact that sharks are essential for the survival of all life on the planet Earth! Now a new research study also indicates the extent to which sharks are financially important to countries:
""According to the study, in certain locations, a single reef shark could be valued at $73 a day alive, as opposed to the one-time value of a set of shark fins used for shark fin soup at $50. Over the course of that same shark’s life, it could be worth more than $200,000 using a conservative 15-year life cycle!!!" So now there is also a financial incentive for humans to keep sharks alive on this planet as well!

Clearly this new research shows how wasteful killing sharks for their fins is from an economic standpoint!!! We already know how important sharks are for the entire World ecosystem if you have been following my blog.Here are some blog posts of mine concerning this fact:
Please do everything you can to educate your family and friends about how important sharks are to the survival of our species and all species on this planet! Thank you on behalf of all the shark species!
