i live in perth, have swum with sharks numerous times (diving) and studied them at university. i think they are amazing...
i makes me feel ill to think they will suddenly be taken off the protected list and be opened up for hunting. so many sharks are already killed by commercial fishing i actually refuse to eat shark for that reason and that they are a slow growing species that takes a long time to recover.
every time i went diving, i knew i was taking a risk. same thing when i hop in the car, i am taking a risk.
if we are truly 'scared' why not spend money on researching shark repellant devices.
or start accepting we are responsible for the risks we take.
