Forget Shark Week – Look Forward to – USS Indianapolis
There are many conditions that must exist for large enough Apex Predator sharks to go after a human.
Under some conditions humans hug, feed, ride and pay large dollars to dive with them.
Then there are conditions when large Apex Predator sharks seek out and kill or eat humans one at a time or by the hundreds.
There have been so many humans killed or eaten by sharks our shark researchers, conservationists, shark attack files don’t mention them or even want you to know about them.
To get the whole truth about sharks you should know about all the good they do for the marine eco system within a well managed fishery.
The bad things that can happen in an unmanaged fishery, and the terrible things that are surfacing in unmanaged sanctuaries.
And the ugliest side of them when they tear into human flesh or seek out humans for food.
We are hoping the new movie USS Indianapolis will shed some truth on the ugliest part of dealing with sharks. Jaws was the imagination of a writer the USS Indianapolis is based on historical facts. Hundreds of sharks eating hundreds of humans.
Caribbean Reef Shark encounter in the Western Caribbean Sea. We were Lion Fish Culling when the shark came out of no ware. It scared the crap out of me. Filmed on my GoPro 3 camera. We were in about 70′ of water when the shark encounter occurred.
The Cayman Islands is where I learned to dive and one of the best dive locations in the world. I would strongly recommend that anyone take a vacation here to enjoy the beauty of its reefs. You will see amazing animals everywhere. I especially recommend night diving. I love this place and will continue diving here for the rest of my life. In no way did this encounter discourage me from getting back into the water.
I want to make it clear that I am hunting lion fish to help protect the reef from the destruction that they cause. The shark was acting in his natural environment. I have no ill will toward him and will get back in the water and continue to protect the reef for future generations. I would strongly encourage anyone out there to donate to REEF.org or other organizations to help protect our reefs, Sharks and the beautiful creatures in them.
