Education the path to more support for shark conservation

“The data also revealed that many recreational anglers are supportive of marine protected areas for threatened shark species, however that climate change is a larger perceived threat to sharks than recreational fishing.

“The findings are encouraging in that many anglers care about shark conservation, but they don’t always know what they can do, including simply changing some fishing techniques to improve shark survival.”  From: summitcountyvoice.com

GR:  It is certainly true that individual sport fisherman have almost no impact on marine ecosystems.  It’s the commercial fishing industry that is driving species toward extinction.
