Have we ever thought of the nature when we are taking measures?
A new type of shark prevention net is a total brand new design which can protect a number of precious marine animals while protecting people.
Shark prevention net is used to prevent the sharks from invading. It is widely used in many oceans to prevent the attack of many giant and dangerous fishes. However, among all the animals which are caught, only 1/40 is shark. There are 380 kinds of sharks in the world, but only 30 of them are full of danger. As we can see, while we are using the shark prevention nets, we also do much harm to other marine animals.
