"We realize that pirates and other hostile sailing groups can be dangerous to their respective socio-biological climates if allowed to over-populate, but some kind of balance needs to be achieved or Sea Vampires will be forced into either extinction or land-based predation."
The possibility of dwindling marine habitats forcing Sea Vampires onto land has been a longstanding fear of both humans and Sea Vampires alike, as the lack of access to pirate prey would likely result in Sea Vampires expanding their diet to include regular humans. Sea Vampire advocacy groups fear that such a shift to widespread consumption of law-abiding humans unaffiliated with marine crime organizations could do irreparable damage to public perception of the Sea Vampire community, reviving old stereotypes, and further blurring the line between generally peaceful Sea Vampires and their more militant, extremist counterparts on land.
