World's fastest shark is on the verge of extinction

Mar 23, 2019 15:37 IST

The shortfin makos shark species is almost on the verge of extinction. Known as the world's fastest shark, the species may be wiped out for good, reveals a latest assessment by the International Union for the Conservation of Nature. Overfishing has lead to its decline along with 17 other species of shark. Conservationists suggest that with strict measures on fishing limits, there is still hope of saving the 'slow-growing' species.
