  1. A cautionary tale… the shark attack victim makes an excellent point of how the “shark baiting/tourist boats” are creating dangerous conditions by making the sharks associate humans with food — literally. SMH at how foolish human beings are hurting nature and other people due to greed once again.

  2. I did tournament fish in Bimini.I wonder,since sharks are quite adept at detecting small amounts of blood,if the poor student was having her period when attacked,why three sharks?quite unusual.

  3. I agree that feeding to draw sharks for tourist entertainment could be a factor in these terrible attacks because like this gentleman says in the video the sharks are associating people with food.

  4. Why do white people love the sea so much? It’s freaking too dangerous. I would never dip even my toes in it

  5. To quote from https://www.floridamuseum.ufl.edu/shark-attacks/reduce-risk/divers/

    "If you have been spearfishing or abalone gathering and are holding your catch, release the catch and quietly exit the area. It is likely that the shark has been attracted to the sound and smells associated with your activity and it is aroused and interested in consuming your catch. Let it have it – no catch is worth the risk of personal injury."

  6. That's why they shoot bears when they become too friendly…Because idiots are feeding them. This applies to the sharks as well, smh…very irresponsible.

  7. Why, every time they talk about a shark attack, do they show a Great White? You're not going to get attacked by a White in the Bahamas. More than likely it was a Tiger.

  8. It really doesn't matter because if you told people they had a 50% chance of being killed by a shark, they would still go in the water.

  9. You swim in the sharks domain, well, what do you think might happen? Glad he lived but that's the chance you take.

  10. Shooting fish you are spilling blood in the water. Your spearing makes you apart of the problem of them associating humans with food.

  11. I think before going in fly a drone and scan the waters from above too see if any are close look at what almost happened to Pro Surfer MiC FANNinG almost got taken out so like I posted on his vid when having contest they should have several drones keeping an eye out better Safe than Sorry .
