Nature needs us to intervene and it's not, usually, hunters and sport fishers who are doing the damage. We have a vested interest in preserving nature because we depend upon it for so very much.

Guys here are enjoying their day off fishing on the open seas. They might not be looking to catch a shark but caught one & are going to let it go. The chance of it being taken by a grouper 1 in 100,000 or so. And the notion that hook in the shark will kill the grouper slowly, are you for real I mean do you know that hooks are made to wrought away if left hooked in the fish. It will rust away in the stomach aswell maybe quicker.

"Shark fishing is illegal"

Only in some places and also if you look closely before it gets eaten, he has a knife and starts to cut the line, which would allow the shark to swim off, also the hook would eventually corrode away.

"Fishing as a hobby should be banned"

It's not the recreational fishermen/women who are over fishing, its the commercial ships that overfish.

Also "The shark would still be alive today if it wasn't for you"

Well, if the shark was alive, it would of eaten a hell of a lot of fish to stay alive so really they saved other fish from being eaten by an "innocent fish"

Watch: Grouper Slurps Down A Shark, Not A Typical MealPosted by Jason Bittel in Weird & Wild on August 22, 2014

... (photo)

A close-up of an Atlantic goliath grouper. A fish like the one above, was caught on video eating a shark. Photograph by Raul Touzon, National Geographic CreativeThe Atlantic goliath grouper (Epinephelus itajara) isn’t the meanest or fastest fish on the reef. It has neither venomous barbs nor impressive fangs. But as its name suggests, the goliath grouper does do at least one thing of note: It gets big. Darn big.

And as the saying goes, big fish eat little fish.

... (video)

Recently, that little fish was a four-foot shark .... ...

Though the Atlantic goliath grouper can grow up to 800 pounds (363 kilograms) and eight feet (2.4 meters) in length, it subsists almost entirely on smallish mud crabs. But it seems sometimes the goliath will sometimes make exceptions.

“From all available data, goliath grouper do not eat sharks,” said Dr. Matthew Craig, a National Geographic grantee and marine biologist at the University of San Diego in California. “That said, groupers in general are opportunistic feeders. If there is something that is an ‘easy’ meal that can fit in their mouths, they will go after it.”

Christopher Koenig, a biologist from Florida State University, confirms that groupers preying on sharks is unlikely under normal conditions. For one, goliaths don’t have the kind of teeth necessary for tearing through flesh.

...

Giants At Risk...

Watch video of goliath groupers up close with photographer David Doubilet, who shot the images for a story on this fish in the July issue of National Geographic magazine.... (video)

To make you be where you are right now. Animals die every day, from other animals to humans. A species may die out but that doesn't mean the eco system is ruined. And that's not even the case here. Nature makes it's own things. And as the guy said, he was hunting legally. Means that species was not in danger of extinction in its race. And if it was, it'd be illegal to fish on those species until they have been recovered.

a. tires this 4 footer shark that he can't put up a fight anymore

b. anesthetized'

we have people claiming that instead of fisherman fishing in large ecosystems they should fish in small ecosystems so they have less effect because large ecosystems host endangered species like sharks and instead it would clearly be much greater of an idea to fish in small ecosystems cause we don't need them anyway :)

we have people saying the hook in the groupers stomach will cause it to die a slow and painful death.

people claiming that they intended to catch the shark, clearly with zero understanding how by catch works particularly with that rod and reel set up, and that it is cruel to fish sharks? I mean as apposed to say a fish or some lessor form of life because of it's size? maybe I'm not to sure whatever floats there boat. Fully pledged vegetarians clealy that have never tasted any form of meet.

another comment for the eyes and I quote: "You gotta wonder about the kind of man who gets enjoyment out of killing other animals. Like "mmmmm its a pleasant Sunday arvo, might take the boat out and kill some baby shark. And if I can't be arsed dragging him in to do it, I'll just let him flail around a while till it attracts a grouper to snag him off the line". We got a name for that kinda person where I'm from."

more quotes: "white boys be like 'Lololol, let's be total douches and hunt an endangerend species!! A+ idea BRO'."

"YOU KNOW IT IS ILLAGAL IN ALL COUNTRIES OF THE WORLD TO HUNT SHARKS!!!!! WAIT NO IT IS LEGAL TO HUNT ALL SPECIES OF SHARK ARCORDING TO THE TOP COMMENTS OF THIS VIDEO!!!" need I say it.

"Fuck I hate people who fish for 'sport.' They're all arseholes. Leave these fish alone. No wonder the environment is being fucked over."

"In this clip you can see:

1. End of a young shark

2. And idots fishing without any respect for nature, all education went wrong for them"

Thanks for reading if you bothered to read this give it a thumbs up so we can see that we can claw back some decency in these comments. If anybody disagrees with what I'm saying drop a reply I'll be happy to talk :) props to the few using the thing between their ears gives me hope for the internet.

pete sampson- 7 years agoI have hunted and fished for all of my fairly long life and I can damned-well guarantee you that I have done more to preserve the environment and it's organisms, including plants, than most people who are 100% against harvesting anything wild. License fees alone are a pretty big chunk but I have also contributed a lot of back-breaking labor to improving trout streams ruined by farming and erected hundred's, if not quite a thousand, wood duck nesting boxes. I have also devoted a lot of time and energy to convincing farmers to set aside as much property as they can afford to provide habitat for wild plants and animals.

I realize that there are a lot of idiots who show off their stuff on YouTube and I find a lot of it maddening but one can make a strong argument that there would be far fewer game fish and animals without the efforts of conscientious hunters and fishers.

Carlos Camejo- 8 years agoChris- 8 years agoCarlos Camejo- 8 years agoChris- 8 years agoAlso, the majority of plants we eat have seeds. And when we eat leaves, they can re-grow them.

And I'm not a hypocrite because as I've written (you do know how to read, right?) whether or not someone eats meat is not the issue. The issue is the glorification of death on this video.

We all have to poop, but you don't see people applauding poop videos. Well ... maybe you do. But normal people, I mean.

I will swallow you- 8 years ago"Firstly", so do fucking parasites, and not every plant "depends" on others eating them to survive, in fact a substantial number of plants release pheromones when attacked to signal insects and other organisms to fend of the attacker.

"Secondly", I am not justifying a damn thing nor have a love of death, I am just pointing out blatant hypocrisy of your naive claims.

HOOKEM IN THE MOUTH KAYAK FISHING- 6 years agoHarley Dirk- 9 years agoPyroGothNerd- 9 years agoThat's what guys do when doing anything these days. People take pictures of what they're eating.

Harley Dirk- 9 years agoPyroGothNerd- 9 years agoThe video was edited to only show when the grouper showed up. Also, as I've pointed out, they tried to cut the line.

Harley Dirk- 9 years agoJames Raymond- 9 years agoPyroGothNerd- 9 years agoXamnus4life- 9 years agoXamnus4life- 9 years agoPyroGothNerd- 9 years agoBut your comment flat out accused these people of purposely catching a shark and trying to feed it to a grouper. As I pointed out before, at about 0:30, one of the guys reaches out his arm to catch and cut the line to free the shark (because if they try to get the hook out, the shark might rip their arm out because the shark won't realize they're trying to help)

Ben Sadikin- 9 years agoKenneth Baum- 9 years agoPyroGothNerd- 9 years agoSo let me see if I understand this: instead of getting food on one's own, people should let large companies, who over fish, damage aquatic ecosystems on a MUCH LARGER SCALE?

Also, there are shelters one can survive in without damaging ecosystems to build them.

Ben Sadikin- 9 years agoPyroGothNerd- 9 years agoFishing is done so people have something to eat, because not everyone wants to sit around and lets some guys who are overfishing with nets catch something for them all the time. The same goes for legal hunting (illegal is another matter)

Ben Sadikin- 9 years agoBen Sadikin- 9 years agoBen Sadikin- 9 years agoPyroGothNerd- 9 years agoWell, that's not what they were intending in the video.

Here's what most likely happened:

"DUDE! LOOK! WE ACCIDENTALLY CAUGHT A SHARK!"

"We better let it go"

"WAIT! LET'S RECORD IT TO SHOW OUR FRIENDS FIRST!"

"Okay, and then we can cut the line on camera to show everyone that we're not monsters (0:30 mark) since we'd get our arms bit off if we tried to remove the hook"

"Allright, we got video, now to cut the li-"

WILD GROUPER APPEARS!!! WILD GROUPER USED SWALLOW!!! IT'S SUPER EFFECTIVE!!!

"WHAT?!!?"

...

"Think people would be interested in a video of the shark being eaten by a grouper?"

"Would it be safe to post that?"

"Well, duh, obviously we did not intentionally feed the shark to the grouper. What kind of idiot would think we did?"

mceelie1- 9 years agoPyroGothNerd- 9 years agoBuilding towns and cities caused more animals to go extinct than any form of hunting, because it causes loss of habitat. Do you feel bad for living in a house because of it? http://curiosity.discovery.com/question/what-leading-cause-extinction-era

Ben Sadikin- 9 years agoPyroGothNerd- 9 years agoThe grouper is endangered...are you suggesting we should starve endangered animals?

Ben Sadikin- 9 years agomceelie1- 9 years agoPyroGothNerd- 9 years agoThey reach out their arm before the grouper is even visible. I watched this video over and over again to check.
