    Sharks and rays of Australian seas. Format Book Published [Sydney] Angus and Robertson [] Description x, p. illus. 24 cm. Notes Bibliography: p. Subject headings Rays (Fishes) Sharks. Fishes--Australia.   The Secret Social Life of Sharks. The recent findings of a four-year research study have revealed that sharks have more complex social lives than we previously thought. A team of researchers observed the social behavior of 41 reef sharks around the Palmyra Atoll, about 1, miles southwest of Hawaii.

    There are sharks, whitetips, down there every day circling, but this one didn’t move. After the cleansing and the prayer, the shark left. the old kapuna said, ‘Oh, (the shark god) came to watch’. They thought it was a good sign.” Taken from Shark and Rays of Hawaii by Gerald L. Crow and Jennifer Crites. Rays of the World is the first complete pictorial atlas of the world’s ray fauna and includes information on many species only recently discovered by scientists while undertaking research for the book. It includes all 26 families and valid named species of rays, but additional undescribed species exist for many groups.

    As a result, lawmakers have set forth a new law that will ban the killing of any shark or ray in state waters, no matter what species it is. While the idea of more sharks in Hawaii’s waters might make you more scared to swim, the reality is these sea creatures are critical for the island’s marine ecosystems. I’ve been trying to get the bill re-introduced in Hawaii to ban the purposeful killing of sharks and rays and this just feels like the biggest sign to keep pushing forward for more protection for them. Shark populations around the planet are severely declined. They need protection from targeted shark fishing for shark been soup and sport fishing.
