So the question on my thing is 'summarize why we monitor shark populations' and the obvious answer is to be like 'to know if they're dying off, how they migrate, etc' but why tf do we even monitor that
like why do we need to know
this question wasn't supposed to cause an existential crisis
but
why tf do we monitor the population of anything, let alone sharks
Because the ecosystems are actually highly interconnected and effects to the population of one cause big effects to other stuff we care about lol.

Huh. Uh...well, I guess you could say that we need to know about it because migrating could mean that there is a problem in the habitat that humans need to check up on. I guess sharks are also important because they help keep the food chain in order, as sharks eat a lot of things that eat yummy fish that we (Who are omnivores) eat. I guess. No idea what I'm saying, though. :idunno
