Marinas join this initiative for a variety of reasons, namely positive media exposure, and the green effect. In today's marketplace the public perception of green businesses is shifting. Those companyies that do business green are seeing higher traffic and dedicated consumers. Adding a Shark-Free Marina sign to your site informs the public you care about the environment and sustainable fisheries. Think of it as a public green badge supported by our growing list of fishing industry members and NGO's.
Shark-Free Marinas is empathetic towards animal protection and animal welfare. We do not accept irresponsible slaughter of sharks. A shark certainly undergoes trauma when caught but when released by skilled fishermen using proper equipment they can easily recover. When shark fishing is combined with research we also have unique opportunities to collect samples and implant data collecting tags to better monitor the populations health and movements.
