If shark fishing should be banned, all fishing should be banned. again we are saying some fish are more important than others. It is like saying cats and dogs because they are "pets" are more important than cows, pigs, sheep, chickes, etc, Even though these animals are also kept by many as pets. It is sad she died and more so preg, but her death is no worse than that of billions of other animals we slaughter every hour of the day in slaughter houses. or the thousands of other fish that are caught and killed every day for sport, and by fisheries.
