This article explains the many benefits of MPAs. Though not specific to sharks, it shows how ecosystems, fisheries, and the economy can benefit in the long run with MPAs. A Marine Protected Area is basically just a protected area in the ocean. They can have lots of different levels of enforcement. Minimally protected ones aren’t as effective as highly protected ones.

They will help the shark population prosper, which will help the ocean ecosystems.
