Absolutely horrible that these competitions still exist. Shark population numbers are plummeting all over the world with a rate of 2-3 per second being killed and these guys are handing out prizes for whoever can catch the largest one.
Sharks don't reach sexual maturity early in life. Plucking out the largest sharks means plucking out ones that are vital to the population's ability to reproduce and sustain their current numbers.
Shame on #Yarmouth, #NovaScotia, Bob Gavel, and Rachelle Surette for hosting this 👎 and #RuddersSeafood and #TriNavMarineBrokerage for sponsoring it.
Rachelle Surette has publicly listed her cell phone number on their Facebook page for "any questions" about the event :
Keep in mind this is a Canadian number if you are inclined to text and/or call to politely inform her of the important role sharks play in the ocean.
Be a voice for the voiceless.
