‘ Sharks are older than dinosaurs. They have evolved with the planet developing sophisticated perceptive mechanisms learning to navigate in straight lines by tracing the magnetic shifts in the earth’s crust at depths as great as 400m. They are still considered merely violent and dispensable and are slaughtered in vast numbers for their fins to make soup. The truth is that a shark has to be one of the most sophisticated and beautiful of animals and a vital ingredient to our oceanic ecosystem.’
