On July 9th, a shark fishing tournament is being held throughout South Florida, encouraging the massacre of excessive amounts of coastal species, targeting the largest individuals during a vital migration period. Participants are justifying the tournament by claiming that it promotes marine balance, while encouraging each other to kill as many sharks as possible and inflict incredible suffering on them by shooting them, chopping them up with their propellors, and sinking the illegal species.
Disturbingly, the tournament is allegedly supported by Florida Wildlife Commission and NOAA Fisheries.
