Why is it "rechinii", if it says "sharks", not "the sharks"?

In sentences expressing general statements, there's a definite article in Romanian, even if there's none in English:
Sharks are fish. - Rechinii sunt pești.

Ah, I didn't read this as a general sentence. I read it as "(some group of) sharks eat the small whales (those ones over there)"
