    The diversity of sharks is just amazing

    White sharks (Carcharodon carcharias) are migratory, apex predators, which have undergone significant population declines. We have to understand the shark ecology to ensure our management strategies are effective.

    Sharks constantly shed small pieces of themselves into the ocean. Scientists can now use DNA in these flakes to monitor whether white sharks – commonly called great whites – are swimming nearby. This technique could be deployed to make informed decisions about which shark habitats to conserve and also help swimmers and surfers avoid potentially dangerous interactions with sharks.

    The University of Florida’s International Shark Attack File reported 66 unprovoked shark bites in 2018, down from 88 in 2017 and 26 per cent lower than the most recent five-year average of 84 incidents annually.

    Four of the bites proved fatal, roughly keeping in line with the average of six deaths worldwide per year. Consistent with long-term trends, the U.S. led the world in attacks with 32 bites, a drop from 53 the previous year.

  • Shark uw swimming to camera

    Thanks to media hype like Jaws and Finding Nemo, white sharks are the ocean's most iconic and feared fish. But we know surprisingly little about them.

    Much of what we think we know about great white sharks simply isn’t true. They aren’t mindless killers, they aren’t always loners, and they are much smarter than scientists gave them credit in the past.

    Meeting a great white shark in the wild is nothing like you expect it would be. At first glance, it’s not the zeppelin beast we’ve come to expect from a thousand TV shows. It’s portly, bordering on fat, like an overstuffed sausage. The world’s greatest predator is little more than a slack-jawed buffoon.

  • winter sharks in gansbaai

    Gansbaai in South Africa is the only place in the world where you can safely go cage diving with Great White Sharks all year round. And believe it or not, the winter season is the best time to do this bucket list adventure.
