Although, in the United States shark fin soup is not permitted from being sold some restaurants still continue to sell it. Restaurants owner’s that decide to sell shark fin soup are operating on a bad decision and planning practices because the sharks reproductive cycle takes from one year up until two years to produce offspring. This means that sharks are being killed faster than they can reproduced each year. The main ingredient is dwelling down and restaurants owners will have to eventually pay more for the shark fins and the return on investment will decrease. Restaurant owners are also contributing to the collapse of the ecosystem by removing sharks which play an essential role in the ocean. Sharks are the healers of the sea. Sharks serve as the immune system for our ocean. Removing sharks affect the marine life, which has a direct and indirect consequences to all life on earth. If sharks were valued for their worth as a species, sharks could provide environmental and economic growth to the world and humanity. Palau has recognized the worth of sharks and has invested in protecting their business partners. Due to the smart business decision Palau, has a thriving multi-million dollar industry because of the flourishing ecosystem that the sharks protect.
