Shark Fin Soup!

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.

About ernieg

Aloha! My name is Ernie Gomez, I am a junior in the Robert H. Smith School of Business at the University of Maryland, College Park (UMD) attending The Universities at Shady Grove (USG) campus. I was born and in Los Angeles CA, and moved to Hawaii when I was 2O years old. I moved to Maryland in order to attend the prestigious Robert H. Smith School of Business at UMD. After graduating high school, I joined the Marine Corp but after eight years of service, I enrolled in college. My decision enabled me to obtain my Associates Degree in Business and Mathematics, at Palomar College in San Diego, California. After my move from California to Maryland, I looked for a top ranked business school that could help me further my education. The Robert H. Smith school easily became my top choice. When I was applying for college at Maryland, I learned of USG and the great resources available to students. After acquiring more information about USG, I just couldn’t resist. If you don’t know me! My hobby? Working on cars. Who inspires me? Anyone and everyone inspires me, because I know I can learn from every person I meet. However, I admire Eric Thomas who famously quoted, “When you want to succeed as bad as you want to breathe, then you’ll be successful.” Words that describe me: Humble, Compassionate, Powerful, Honorable My goal: My goal is to move back to California, next to the beach and buy a home also in HAWAII. I am a humble, compassionate and honorable individual who strives to accomplish my life goals. If you see me around school, feel free to say “Hi” and start a conversation. USG is my #1 pick and I am happy to be a part of the USG community. I hope you enjoy my blogs and if you have any suggestions please feel free to reply to my post.
