New Shark Species Expands Threat Specter

New Shark Species Expands Threat Specter

In an immensely shocking disclosure, a recently released report by U. S. scientists has revealed that a lot many identity confusions among a new and as-yet unspecified shark species and its cousin that look alike, known as the hammerhead shark, tends to threaten both the species.

The fresh look-alike hammerhead species, which were first identified off in the eastern United States, has now been said to be in excess of 4,300 miles off the coast of south-Brazil, thereby confirming that the unnamed species is out-and-out common and widespread.

The statements were revealed on Monday by a team of researchers from Nova Southeastern University, Florida.

The look-alike species, as claimed by experts, may well end up facing the same fishery dangers and highly elevated levels of threat as done by the real and extremely endangered species known as the scalloped hammerhead, which is mainly being fished in highly unsustainable mode for its extremely prized fins, the researchers said.

While expressing his opinion in this regard, along with mentioning what all pros and cons can be seen due to it in the time to follow, the lead researcher of the study, Mahmood Shivji, said: “It's a classic case of long-standing species misidentification that not only casts further uncertainty on the status of the real scalloped hammerhead but also raises concerns about the population status of this new species”.

In addition, it has been said that millions of sharks are facing deep killings all over the world for the purpose of their meat and fins, which further results in a dramatic downfall in the population of sharks.

In addition, it has been said that it is highly important that the new hammerhead species gets officially recognized and named.
