A Hammerhead shark was found in Estero bay to have seemed to be killed for its jaw. A creature's life for a wall decoration item or sale. These species are protected by laws, but the laws are only good if people obey by them.
Sharks play a huge role in our ecosystem, as do all creatures. We know that there has been more sharks in the news for showing up on shores, and "attacking", but now this? The sharks have been here long before we have, and ONLY with our help, will they be here long after we've gone.
We don't know about you, but we feel that all laws are in place to protect these creatures for a reason. The laws are there not only to protect us, but everything around us. When one shark is destroyed, it effects the whole ecosystem below it. Fishing is a great sport and recreation in Naples, Florida and surrounding areas, but it needs to be taken seriously. Catch and return when you can! We're on board with raising awareness of how important sharks are to our ecosystem -join us by learning more here!
