Hey guys, since all of us care about the world I strongly suggest you watch the movie Sharkwater. It will completely change the way you think about sharks and will also open your eyes to the unbelievable and unnecessary destruction that us humans are bringing down on our wonderful planet

For those of us who have seen it, drop your opinion about the movie and the whole issue it portraits. I hope there are enough users here in the pit who think this is important!

Sharks are great, they haven't evolved much for the last millions of years because mother nature did too good of a job.

I'm still hoping for some seriousness here! Give the movie a try, you'll be surprised at the extension of the misconception and carelessness about sharks and ecology in general.

Before anyone answers "no, it would eat me!", watch the movie.

@ "OMG It's a shark"

Sharks wouldn't be so misunderstood if shark attacks weren't such media gold. Seriously, they're like mosquitos, these stories. Every summer somebody gets bitten and everybody panics.

Please do so! The only 'scary' part of it is a 5-second sample of the movie "Jaws", which is one of the reasons that sharks are so wrongly feared and hated today. You'll be astonished and glad to have watched it!

Jaws isn't really what I'm scared of, I just have an irrational fear of the ocean and basically anything that resides in the ocean, and since this is a movie about sharks I assume it will have video of sharks and/or the ocean which means it's far too frightening for me.

If the movie contained none of that stuff then I would watch it.

Exactly! The movie will dissipate your fear of the ocean, when it comes to the animals living in it. If you are scared of the ocean itself, and not it's residents, then that's something else, but I still suggest you to be open-minded and give it a try!

If he has an irrational fear of the ocean, it will probably not be dissipated by watching a movie. I kind of know what he means as I do too, not of anything in the water that will eat me just the idea that you are floating over a gigantic pool of nothing. I would probably get the same feeling in space, it really makes you feel small and insignificant. It's pretty scary in and of itself.

I haven't seen it, but to the guy who wants a pet shark, I saw a doco on an Aquarium who put a Great White Shark in a tank with other fish as a baby, and it rapidly grew and began to brutally murder all the other animals in the tank. It was quite a good documentary

This reminds me of this cartoon I saw when I was a kid. There was this guy who was a really good swimmer and he liked swimming in the bay, but all the locals were there as well and he wanted the beach to himself. So he made a shark outfit and was swimming around, scaring everyone into thinking there was a shark there.
Then, on the third time he was doing it, an actual shark appeared, and it was a female shark that was attracted to the guy that was dressed as the shark. She was talking to him and everything and it was pretty clear he was interested, and then he looked at the audience and gulped before it ended.

Moral of the story - sharks are just attracted to you and looking for a bit of poontang. Don't make this problem worse by dressing up as a shark.

It's not such a big deal really. I mean, yeah a shark bite is, but considering the number of people just at the beaches around where I live in Florida and the number of "attacks"- the risk is sooo minimal. I don't know much about this movie- but from what I've gathered from your posts I think this makes an interesting point for people. Sharks aren't out to get anyone- they're just surviving. I don't know, that's how I've always thought of it.

That's right.
In the movie, at some point he said something very smart:
You wouldn't approach a group of lions in their territory, right? Why should it be different from sharks?

Did you guys know that elephants kill more people per year than sharks? They only kill about 5 persons every year. And there are about 80 million sharks killed per year by fishers, who usually just cut off their fins while they are alive and kick them back into the ocean, where they die because they can't move.

Another view: Sharks are the top predators of the seas. If sharks were to suddenly disappear, many of their prey would grow in the numbers, which will equate to a decline in the number of photosynthetic, oxygen producing phytoplankton and algae (large part of the shark's prey eat these). This means a drop in atmospheric oxygen levels. Killing sharks is not just endangering them, it endangers us too.

the only reason elephants kill so many people is because hundreds of millions of people live in the same place as elephants. I'm sure if hundreds of millions of people decided to live in the ocean there would be far more people killed by sharks every year.

Anyways, I've decided to try watching this movie. I probably won't be able to finish but I might as well try.

Not really, more people are in contact with elephants than there are with sharks I would guess. Plus bull elephants are very agressive where as sharks would prefer to eat seals than people, hence why so many attacks end with a bite rather than a full on munching

I didn't mean for it to come across as making fun of you lol. I think it's funny because that's exactly how I am. I guess amused would be a more appropriate way to describe it.

EDIT: I don't know how many humans are killed by elephants, I'm going off of the point he made. But, apparently the documentary claims more than are killed by sharks. Plus, you have to think about this: I think that more people come away from a shark bite with injuries whereas you can't really "escape" from an elephant.

That's right, but either way, fact is that the number of people killed by sharks is minimal. I think it shouldn't matter if we have a lot of contact with them or not.

40, if I am correct. There's a nice comparison of numbers of deaths by different causes in the movie. I will post it later since I don't have the movie at hand right now.

It's the same as in the Judaism and Islam, where the pig is banned (food-wise) for several stupid, illogical reasons, along with some other animals. Of all the banned animals, the pig is the most hated (no one hates rabbits or horse, which are banned for eating too). Yet the pig is one of the closest animals to the human, from a morphological point of view. Definitely much closer than a horse or a rabbit. Misconceptions are stupid!
