warmer ocean with smaller sharks

海水變暖及的增加,令鯊魚消耗更多能量,同時令牠們嗅覺靈敏度下降,影響覓食。鯊魚一直被過分捕獵,現在氣候變化亦帶來更多威脅。專家預計鯊魚體型會越來越小,數量亦會一直下降,並影響整個生態系統的健康。

with the warmer sea water and rising CO2 level, the shark is requiring more energy to survive but their sense of smell ability is weakened and that has reduced metabolic efficiency during their hunt. this would ultimately resulted in smaller size and less aggressive sharks, and at the end damage the health of ocean ecosystems.
