    Sharks are the managers of our healthy oceans but human beings are killing about 100 million sharks per year. Frank, Ryan and Vicky try to convince Sherry that sharks don't care about her and don't want to kill her...to no avail. Frank talks about the shark species' vital role to our ecosystem. Vicky and Jay Nog discuss their experience swimming with shark in eco-travel. The panel agrees that the movie JAWS set sharks WAY back. Frank tells the group about SOFO's new initiative catching and tagging Great White juveniles with the help of OCEARCH and the incredible revelations they've made about Great Whites. Sharks take 15-20 years to be reproductively mature - even longer than humans. Sherry cracks jokes to cope with her fear. All this and more on She's Got Issues!
