A biologist’s perspective on the ocean’s apex predators | #childpredator | #onlinepredator | #sextrafficing

Shark week is approaching, and everyone is wild for those cartilaginous fish. I am compelled to write my annual article with a cautionary tale on why they are considered an apex predator and why we should admire them but remain cautious and respectful when dealing with them as they are still apex predators and wild animals.

So here is my cautionary tale. I never name animals that come into the Oceanarium or my care.

While I respect them and admire them for their unique qualities, they are wild animals and should never be thought of as a pet or have human emotions attributed to them. In my opinion, we should not be naming whales or sharks. Any scientist who does so is risking their unbiased scientific credentials.

Lately, on the news, I have heard many statements about sharks from so-called experts that just made me roll my eyes. Here are a few, “Sharks don’t attack people, they are just curious” or “There aren’t more large sharks, we are just hearing more about them because of social media.” I feel that if a scientist makes these statements, they have lost their objectivity which is essential to being a good scientist.
