Sharks, not humans, most at risk in ocean
Barry Artiste Op/Ed
You know stating Sharks are more at risk, than humans, perhaps never had a shark swallow your dangly nibbly bits. Perhaps they should do a remake of Jaws and replace the shark with a human dressed in a man thong and a fin strapped onto his back, who would swim the worlds oceans biting the sharks in the nibbly bits and see who is at the top of the food chain. But then a Human Jaws Movie, would not have the horrific cache a shark does I suppose.
SYDNEY - Three shark attacks in Australia in two days this week sparked a global media frenzy of "Jaws" proportions, but sharks are more at risk in the ocean than humans with man killing millions of sharks each year.
Sharks are the top of the marine food chain, a powerful predator which has no match in its watery realm, until man enters the ocean.
Commercial fishing and a desire for Asian shark fin soup sees up to 100 million sharks, even protected endangered species of sharks, slaughtered around the world each year, says the Shark Research Institute (Australia).
Yet in contrast, sharks, apparently, do not like the taste of humans. Very few shark attacks involve the shark actually eating the human, unlike a land-based predator like a lion or tiger.
