So the “Jaws” story of the summer comes out of the waters of Australia, where a poor surfer was literally torn apart and eaten by a massive White Shark. Naturally, this is a frightening occurrence but one must take all the facts into consideration before projecting fear and blame upon the shark. While it is truly tragic, we cannot go on shark killing sprees to avenge the death of one human. Sharks are an essential member in oceanic ecosystems and therefore the ocean as a whole.
In addition to the normal reactions to shark attacks, Australian authorites are considering to lift a fishing ban on White Sharks. I believe that this is the wrong way to approach the situation.
