Many species of sharks and ray are on the verge of extinction in the world, including Pakistan
In the oceans around the world, the survival of sharks and other aquatic species associated with their families is under serious threat. According to the latest international research, 18 species of sharks and reeds have declined by 70% in the last 50 years, while some species of sharks have declined over the next 20 years. Complete extinction has also been revealed.
According to WWF (Pakistan), in the past, there were 134 species of sharks and their family of aquatic life in Pakistan’s coastal areas. The coastal areas of Balochistan and Mara and Jivani were considered breeding grounds for wild sharks. Due to this, most species of sharks have become extinct in Pakistan during the last three decades and some of them have become extinct.
According to the latest research on sharks and reeds from Simon Fraser University in Canada, the population of 18 species of sharks and reeds in the world’s oceans has declined by 70% since 1970. The shark and rhinoceros species are endangered globally due to over-hunting. According to research, if shark meat continues to be part of the human diet so rapidly, some species of shark could become completely extinct in the next 10 to 20 years.
