Whale Shark is included in endangered species list

Whale Shark is a shark instead of a whale. Physiologically, a whale shark breathes with gills, like other fish.

Its large size, make people call this shark as a “whale shark.” In fact, whale shark is believed as one of the biggest fish in the ocean. While whale is the biggest marine mammal, and even the largest animal in the world.

The number of whale shark (Rhynodon typus) is estimated around 7 thousands all over the world.

The population is decreasing year by year. Caused of population depletion are:
- by catching impact of fish industries.
- vessels strikes
- long life span
- late maturity

In some spots such as in Tambelan, Kepulauan Riau, Indonesia, whale shark is observed after 100 years of disappeared.

International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) enlists whale shark as endangered species.
