Welcome to the Shark and Coral Conservation Trust (SCCT) web site.

Extract from 'Ocean Acidification' - Royal Society - 30th June 2005

Dr Turley said ocean acidification represented potentially a gigantic problem for the world. She added, " It's urgent indeed to warn people what's happening - - many of the marine species we rely on to eat could well disappear. In cartoon terms, you could say people should prepare to change taste and switch from cod and chips to jellyfish and chips".

Are we witnessing a gradual process leading inexorably to the total demise of sharks on our coral reefs? Throughout the world sharks are under such intense attack by Man that their numbers have declined to the point where certain species are now threatened with extinction.

The situation in the Red Sea is critical and some areas that were until recently renowned for their richly productive reefs, replete with fish of all sizes, including sharks, have been transformed into desolate habitats where both the coral-reef fish and their primitive predators have been wiped out.

Meanwhile the general public is still being fed the misleading old line that the seas are full of man-eating sharks and we must protect ourselves at all costs from them. 

The fact is that the demise of the sharks will affect the whole eco-system and sea creatures such as oysters, clams and scallops will disappear (see diagram below)
