Does this explain the shark problem?

Global warming and overfishing. And any good news we can dig up.

Does this explain the shark problem?

Post by Matt Flynn » Wed Jun 15, 2022 11:28 am

Lots of posts across northern Australia about hooked fish being sharked, sharks seem to be in plague proportions and aggressive, but I've no historic data to compare.

The mantra is that sharks are attracted to fishing boats, but there have always been boats.

Maybe this explains it, sharks are getting hungrier? ... https://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2 ... 155808.htm

I hear it's because no one chases them commercially any more

Might explain at places like Shady Camp where sharks died in gill nets, no nets now so more sharks.
