Through movies such as “Jaws” and common misperception, the great white shark continues to be one of the most vilified and feared creatures on earth. One factor that is not immediately recognized is that these predators play a very important role in the ocean’s ecosystem. Overfishing, gill nets and illegal long lines, and poaching for their jaws, teeth, and fins has begun to deplete the great white shark population around the world.
