These characteristics make sharks, like this porbeagle, particularly vulnerable to over-exploitation this vulnerability is exacerbated by the large and growing demand for shark fins and the general lack of management of shark fishing. Shark fishing for meat, cartilage and liver oil, and the destruction of important habitat s, such as mangrove swamps and shallow lagoons (areas that provide safe havens for juvenile sharks), is having devastating effects on shark populations worldwidealthough almost every large-scale shark fishery ends in collapse, global shark exploitation and trade remain unregulated and no internationally.
