Shark Attacks

Shark Attacks
With all the recent shark warning activity in the water over this year, and the horrific Shark Attacks that took place over in W.A. and Northern Rivers of N.S.W, makes you wonder what is driving these large beasts in shore. To have a meal on us unsuspecting homo sapiens, dressed like some Turtle or Seal in a black Wet-suit playing around, is unfortunate and very unlucky.
I might have an idea that reaks of common sense. It might be that the food chain out to sea where the big top of the chain predators prowl, is getting decimated with over fishing by commercial, and also now an ever increasing scale of amateurs, with their unlimited catch are stripping the reefs and the deep water, and driving them into the shallower waters near the coast for a feed.
“Experts have blamed the increasing number of surfers and whales for a huge spike in the number of shark attacks on Australia‚Äôs. Who am I to question the “Experts” but depleting their food supply has got to have some thing in it.

Australian surfer Mick Fanning fought off a shark after it flipped him off his board during an event at Jeffreys Bay in South Africa.

Between the Tweed, Richmond, and Clarence Rivers that stretch between the Gold Coast down to Yamba N.S.W., and also the Yallingup Margaret River area of W.A. we have the major trawling, amateur sport and recreational fishing resource in these areas, that may be getting stripped of the big Sharks food source.
It appears we people are becoming an unexpected food source in these areas, all be it accidental most of the time, one would hope.

I can only imagine Shark Attacks survival to be slim, even if one hits you with curiosity and not a meal in mind, with horrific results being the end story.
I am of the opinion also that there is one big one out there that is doing most of the damage, and he/she can easily call Yamba to the Tweed, his/her domain, and the one at W.A., the same.
