If the player chooses to poison the shark, he/she is banished from Manaan forever (unless the player quickly, through dialogue options, blackmails the Manaan court, thus allowing him to stay in Manaan for the price of his silence), because the shark is believed to be the Progenitor, the kolto's keeper and source. So, kolto is no longer available, which causes the prices of healing supplies throughout the galaxy to rise.

Manaan is known throughout the galaxy for one thing: being the sole producer of kolto, a powerful healing agent harvested from the ocean surface.
But there are those that feel Manaan's precarious position between the two super-powers is doomed to end in bloodshed.

Manaan did not have contact with the galaxy until the Selkath were enslaved by the Empire.
Manaan was presumably freed in 5 ABY, by the New Republic.
