7. They need a lot of space
Many people visit aquariums hoping to see the sharks up close. Especially the great white, but no exhibition like this exists anywhere in the world. Since 1955, aquariums have made numerous attempts to put large white sharks in captivity.
6. Captivity causes depression
Marine biologists believe that because we are unable to create an adequate artificial environment for the great white people in captivity to make them depressed. They are not happy with their new surroundings.
5. They hurt themselves
A common behavior among the great targets in captivity is to put their heads on the walls of their tanks. There are several theories as to why this happens. Some scientists believe that being in a tank interrupts the great sense of electroreception of the large target, which allows them to feel the electrical charges in the water around them, which makes it difficult for sharks to detect the walls of the tank.
4. It's expensive
From the first steps to capture and transport a great white shark to keeping it in captivity, exhaustive resources are required. When the Monterey Bay Aquarium was commissioned to transport a large 4-foot-long white from Malibu to northern California in 2004, a custom mobile tank had to be built.
3. It is not good to see
The introduction of a large white shark exhibit would likely result in many disappointed customers.
A tank large enough to accommodate a large white shark would not be practical in size, making it difficult for hopeful spectators to closely observe the predator.
2. They do not survive in captivity
In general, there are two possible outcomes when placing a large target in confinement: o it is released again in the wild after a short stay in an aquarium, it usually refuses to eat and is injured.
1. Public perception is changing
Information on the effects of confinement on certain species has become more transparent and accessible than ever in recent years. Documentaries such as Blackfish and The Cove have drawn attention to the inhuman nature of keeping marine life in captivity.
