「世界無翅宣言」鯊魚被驚悚電影汙名化了.... - Wise Library 1985

鯊魚吃人嗎?在驚悚片的電影中總可見到鯊魚會飢餓而攻擊人類。實際上,如果鯊魚看到人類出現在海裡,鯊魚的攻擊通常是基於困惑或好奇。鯊魚在人類存在之前已經進化了數百萬年,即人類不是鯊魚正常飲食的一部分。在海洋生態系統中,鯊魚是機會主義的獵捕者,鯊魚通常吃小型魚類和無脊椎動物。人類過度捕殺鯊魚製作魚翅湯等產品。過度捕撈已經威脅到生態的健康了。

 

據悉,魚翅控讓每年 7300 萬鯊魚喪命。據國際保育組織「WildAid 野生救援」2018 年的一項調查, 過去3年內吃過魚翅的國人高達70%。由於鯊肉的市場價值不高,許多不肖業者會選擇「只取魚鰭、棄置魚身」。

 

Do sharks eat humans?

Sharks evolved millions of years before humans existed, which explains humans are not part of their normal diets. In marine ecosystems, sharks are opportunistic feeders, but most sharks primarily feed on smaller fish and invertebrates.[1]

Sharks would rather feed on fish and marine mammals than human beings. In general, sharks do not eat humans and they rarely ever attack humans. In fact, humans do not provide enough high-fat meat for sharks. 

In the movies, Sharks have been known to attack humans out of hunger. In reality, if a shark sees a human splashing in the water, the accidental attack is essentially based on confusion or curiosity.

Instead, we human beings hunt sharks for their meat, internal organs, and skin and make products such as shark fin soup, lubricants, and leather. Nowadays, overfishing threatens some shark populations.

According to the expert, we should not eat Shark, Swordfish, King Mackerel, or Tilefish because they contain high levels of mercury. (Reference
