Sharks being fished out of existence in Thai waters

An experienced diver has lamented that the only sharks he sees these days are on the fish market slabs.

And he went on Facebook to say how upset he was with the situation about the dwindling marine life in Thailand.

Thai Rath reported that diver Saranyu Pinjaroen posted pictures on the social media site that showed him looking at piles of sharks – some rare in Thai waters – readied for sale in Ratsada, Muang district of Phuket.

Saranyu commented: “Very Sad. Out diving you hardly see them any more – this is one of the only places where you do”.

He was squatting next to gutted sharks ready to go to the table.

Thai Rath said that two of the species were Tiger Shark that are now rare in Thai waters and Black Tip Reef Sharks whose numbers are decreasing at an increasing rate.
