How does the over fishing of sharks effect ocean ecosystems?

million sharks are killed each year. This has devastating effects on marine ecosystems due to the fact that sharks help to maintain a balance in marine ecosystems and have done so for some 400 million years. Also, as they are the apex predators of the oceans, much like wolves or lions on land, they help to stop some species from over populating an area. If sharks are almost completely removed from an ecosystem there is a boom in the population of the prey of those sharks, for example cow nose rays. Then...
