It is predicted that up to 273 million sharks are killed, by humans, every year, with an average of approximately 100 million. This equates to an average of almost 274,000 sharks every day. Due to overexploitation and lack of proper management some experts predict that if the killing continues at the current rate many species will be lost forever with potentially devastating implications for our ocean ecosystems.
