Slow days at Shark Park and condolences to divers family:

The team at Shark Park had good diving today with the sharks a little on the slow side but a Bull shark is slowly finding its way into the regular viewing list. This is exciting for us as they are typically quite shy when the tigers are around.
On the topic of bull sharks we note with sadness the loss of a diver on one of Jim Abenathy's trips in the Bahamas to an apparent bull shark bite. Our condolences to the family of the deceased and wish Jim and his team well over this trying time. Jim runs a phenomenal operation by all accounts. We support the fact that he doesn't use cages for his baited shark experiences as this is our stance.- education, experience and understanding but never fear.
The killing of our sharks over the last week still looms large and hopefully we will be putting a plan in place to preent this in future with a system of monitors.
