Shark fishing is “the practice of cutting of the shark’s fins and throwing the still living shark back into the sea to die.” (Kettles) My goal is to explain how shark finning, which will lead to the extinction of sharks, will effect our environment and discuss the importance of their conservation. As I mentioned earlier shark fishing is a cruel and inhumane practice by humans of cutting the fins off of live sharks. This wasteful technique uses about 1 percent of the sharks total body weight. Shark finning has been going on for thousands of years, but with the demand growing and the black market prices rising we are finding ourselves scrambling to try to help conserve our sharks. The Ecologist posted an article by Nick Kettles Revealed: How Demand for Shark Fin Soup Fuels Bloody Harvest tells of the large amount of shark blood shed for the Chinese delicacy, shark fin soup.
Shark culling is still being a problem over many years in WA. The catch and kill program has been applied to sharks where the sharks will get killed if they found the sharks over 3 metres. They are using a technique where they put the blood and sharks get attracts to blood they come near the blood and then kill the sharks in where they should use a tracking system like the United States. So they track the sharks so everyone knows where the sharks are on that beach or not. Sharks are considered as main spices in the ocean which means that sharks are extremely important in maintaining a balance of marine ecosystems.
It is set on the fourth of July because that is the date of the main holiday season in Amity and therefore emphasises the amount of business that the shark is losing the town and the number of potential victims. The music in Jaws begins slowly and speeds up until it is at a fast pace. This is connected to feeding theories about the Great White Shark and is very effective at scaring the audience. Great Whites typically stalk their 'prey' by swimming along the bottom and strike by launching a lightning-fast, vertical attack. Also, many films use a technique whereby a particular piece of music is used to identify a specific character.
Huge fishing corporations are catching sharks and hacking off their fins. The shark, still alive, is then thrown overboard to die a slow, painful death by either starving, being eaten alive by other fish, or even drowning (Finding… End It). Over 95% of many other species of sharks have been decimated since 1970. Despite the fact that shark finning is illegal in many parts of the world; many other countries still allow the finning of sharks. Shark fins have been on high demand in Asian countries and are being used in soups and medical remedies (Why Are Sharks Endangered).
Sharks are territorial animals and feel threatened by humans in their water. With a goal to decrease the number of worldwide shark associated injuries and deaths, it is critical to know why sharks attack and which species, how to steer clear of attacks, and what to do if attacked. Body Outline I. Shark attacks and believed causes (a) Provoked vs. Unprovoked 1. GSAF (Global Shark Attack File) defines a provoked incident as one in which the shark was speared, hooked, captured or any situation that a human drew "first blood" and these are the most common reason for attacks.
That builds up great tension and fear of the audience because the director made the audience believe that the two boys who were messing around under the artificial shark fin were really a shark but then he made the audience realise that the original shark was in the safety pool were brodys’ kids were. I thought the scariest moment in the film was towards the end when Quint was attacked by the shark and he was eaten that was the scariest moment and horrifying moment because you can see the sharks teeth covered in blood and small bits of meat on his sharp teeth as they looked lethal as it crushed Quint. I also noticed the size of it, it was incredibly colossal and almost the size of the ship that brody and his team members went on to hunt down the shark.
Environmentalist, Ric O' Barry, calls this "secret genocide" the worst. The town hosts whale - watches in dolphin shaped boats "while the non - performing animals bump up against each other in a tiny concrete pool" (McNeill). The '07 - '08 season Taiji announced that they are "going to add Pacific white sided dolphins to the catch quota" (Fujiwara). Which means yet another species of souls are in danger in their own home. There are three steps to this savage killing: ?the chase, the capture, the kill" (Lonsdale).
Even though people are crazy about Shark Week, they should be interested in finding out the different species that live within the water. Everyone is obsessed about sharks for the fact they think they are the most dangerous fish in the water, but there are scarier animals that swim below. As a result of the national concern about sharks, people get excited when Discovery Channel videotapes the annual show Shark Week. As Palumbi tries to prove their point that sharks are not the most dangerous animal in the water with using logos and ethos but they should have more pathos. The Palumbis begin their tribute to the sharks by describi... ... middle of paper ... ...show.
Come to mama.’ Her blood lures the shark back to the facility, but will her mistake finally be destroyed? The scene is badly written and presented but the complicated plot gives an original ending. For all you action junkies, this film is not worth your money or time. Having not watched many action films, the scene after scene of chaos has put me off completely. The two hours which looked like they were from a low budget movie puts millions of dollars to waste.
Shark! For many, their size, power, and great, mouthwatering jaws fill us with fear and fascination. Not for me, I’m bewitched by them. Sharks kill only a few people each year, but media coverage and movie representation of attacks have marked sharks as voracious killing machines. Our fears—and appetites—fuel an industry that hunts more than 100 million sharks each year and threatens to purge these vital predators from the oceans.
