These predators that are on the top of the food chain help keep the oceans very large ecosystem balanced. Humans kill over 100 million every year, which is cause it these creatures to be on the extinction list. So if they are going extinct, predators like the grouper and snapper eat more fish because of their population increases. Now the fish they consume eat algae, so if all the grouper eat those fish there’s nothing to keep the algae from overgrowing and killing coral roofs and small crustaceans. The ocean holds the MOST diverse ecosystems so when coral reefs die, millions of other species are left with nothing, no food or shelter. So, this leaves fishermen with no job, and the beautiful reef is no longer there for tourism. Also, if there’s no coral, it can’t protect coastal areas from storm damage, erosion, or floods. #SAVEOURSHARKS
