My husband used to live 5 mins from the beach in Libya and he would go swimming there regularly.... he misses it since coming here but he never saw a shark in his life in the waters there. He couldn't believe the sharks will come so close to the beach here.

Tell him not to worry. It's very rare. Often, the lifeguards know when there are sharks around (usually when seals are close by) and send out warnings. They even close certain beach areas as long as they have to periodically when sharks are hanging out close to the beach. Surfers are in deep water all the time and, like the article said, this was the first shark attack since 2004. so that's rare.

Growing up I was always more afraid of jellyfish... :blush:

My stepdad said that have some sort of net system in Australia. Is that true? (my stepdad makes things up sometimes to mess with me...)

For nearly 70 years, shark nets have been protecting Australian swimmers from a death almost too awful to contemplate. Since their introduction in 1936, not one fatal shark attack has been recorded at beaches where nets have been installed.

Awful, that is a really bad way to go.

He bled to death on shore, that's worse I think.

Yes. I cannot even imagine such a thing.


Don't just open your mouth and prove yourself a fool....put it in writing.

It gets harder the more you know. Because the more you find out, the uglier everything seems.

Thanks! I guess it is true.

That's an interesting article. But wow, 15 attacks a year in Florida? That's kind of scary... I guess it's the warmer water.

The argument against shark nets is pretty strong. That's a lot of marine life death to prevent one possible death a year...

Yeah but you gotta see the hundreds of miles of beach and the millions of people enjoying them relative to that number. Honestly, falling victim to a shark is somewhere as likely as hitting it big in the lottery. Probably even lower if you stay within the marked swimming area.
