What about sharks in hawaiian waters?
Our oceans are home to hundreds of different shark species, with most of them harmless. You may have not realized yet it but sharks play an essential role to regulate the marine food web so that the ecosystem structure can stay in balance. Indeed, sharks are considered the apex predator, meaning the top of the food chain. Having said that, you may not see how it can impact our planet directly, but if these predators continue to be killed (by humans), it will notably result in a greater level of prey animals and therefore higher overall levels of carbon dioxide, which amplify global warming.
Did you know that approximately 100 million sharks are killed every year because of human activities?
Several shark species can be seen around the shores of the Hawaiian archipelago, but you will most likely see (to name a few) sandbar sharks, scalloped hammerhead sharks, white-tip reef sharks, and the (terrifying) tiger sharks.
