I thought the Navy and the Army hated each other? NOT MARINES

There is still a bottleneck even though 400ft of water is closest to land off key west. You have to understand that these fish rarely venture deeper than depths of 200 feet and are commonly found in the surf. 200 ft of water is only like 2 miles offshore of Miami. I know they usually migrate at this time of year and have always thought they were going from south to North myself. If the water to the north is too cold then the lead schools may be slowing down and the following schools are catching up to them causing a "traffic jam" for lack of a better word.

Are you all really shocked by this "Breaking Alternative News" item?? This happens EVERY year off the coast of Florida, usually more in March. I can't believe the mods allowed this to post...

It could be these guys again!


Egypt Shocker: "Israel Equipping Sharks with GPS for Attacks"

DateTuesday, December 7, 2010 at 12:21PM |
AuthorScott Lucas in CategoryEA Middle East and Turkey, CategoryMiddle East and Iran

From Ahram Online:

A Sharm El Sheikh marine biologist slammed the conspiracy theory circulating around the country that last week's shark attacks off the South Sinai resort of Sharm El-Sheikh were part of an Israeli conspiracy, but the South Sinai governor supports it.

Mahmoud Hanafy, a professor of marine biology at the Suez Canal University, told Ahram Online that it is "sad," that Egyptian national TV helped perpetuate the theory that the shark attacks, which resulted in one death and four serious injuries this week, may have been controlled by Israel.

Speaking on the public TV program "Egypt Today" yesterday, a specialist introduced as "Captain Mustafa Ismail, a famous diver in Sharm El Sheikh," said that the sharks involved in the attack are ocean sharks and do not live in Egypt's waters.

When asked by the anchor how the shark entered Sharm El Sheikh waters, he burst out, "no, it's who let them in?"

Urged to elaborate, Ismail said that he recently got a call from an Israeli diver in Eilat telling him that they captured a small shark with a GPS planted in its back, implying that the sharks were monitored to attack in Egypt's waters only.

COULD this "incident" last December have been a prelude to the ongoing Egyptian rioting ??

perhaps the citizens are mad at Mubarak for being an Israeli shark sympathizer ?

Yes. YES! My sources tell me that The Israel's are employing Aqua Man to use his abilities to control sea creatures as the next terrorist plot to topple the U.S. and seize control of the Government

Can mods close this? We have multiple threads on this already and its annoying to see all of them on the list when I go under topics..

That makes absolutley no sense if you have multiple threads to ask the Mods to close the one with the most stars,flags,pages and responses out of them all. Maybe they would like to close one or both of the other two.

It does make sense seeing how the others were made first.

This thread has 3 times the replies as the other two put together and the original post on the subject hasn't had a post in 36 hrs. So You're advocating closing an active thread to leave open a dead one? I don't see the logic in that but maybe the Mods will.

40,000 sharks and no one gets bitten. See, they aren't dangerous.

I heard that shark populations all over the world as the top predator of the oceans is in steep decline, the poor things.

Maybe it's a "sign".. ?

Im responsible for starting one of the threads concerning this story. I apologise to all


N.b sharks do use and are very sensitive to elecro magnetic fields, and can detect changes in geomagnetic fields...no expert on the topic but !

Yes you are correct! We actually increased our catches dramatically by switching from a galvanized or stainless steel cable to using monofilament Mainline. It appears that they can detect the magnet field given off by these metals during the oxidation process they go through in sea water.

I am sure that if something is going on with the Earths magnetic poles they would be affected, to what degree I am not even going to attempt a guess.

Maybe he watched the film-doc Sharkwater.
I'm not an expert, but the guy in the film sure seems to be, at the very least, he's been 'living' with sharks for many years.
Opened my eyes about sharks, that's for sure.

Don't tell the Japs, It will make an awefull lot of Sharks Fin Soup. And they'll leave the Ocean floor full of live shark bodies.

Another case of misinformation by the mass media to get the people to back their cause.

The Japanese are an island nation that lives mainly on fish ,why would they discard an edible source of protein? When I was Shark Fishing the meat accounted for 1/3 of our profits. Why on Earth would someone discard a perfectly marketable product?

Or they migrated down and then found Corexit-contaminated waters and are trying to figure out where to go next.

In other words, they are now displaced. They came to the GoM as usual and found that it was uninhabitable. Now they need to readjust their patterns.

I have very limited knowledge on the sea world, so please accept my apologies for my poor use of marine terminology. But I thought I’d share this recent experience in case it provides a bit of interest.

I landed in Tampa Florida on Jan 27th about 2pm. I requested a window seat, (as always), and I was staring out the window on this sunny clear day. As our plane was getting closer to approaching Tampa International, the plane was pretty close to the water. (I have uncorrected 20/20 vision). I like to stare in to the water off of Florida when I fly, because where I’m from, the water is never clear. That’s when I noticed what I honestly assumed then, were schools of dolphins. I kept seeing all these, “dolphins.” Holy cow lots-o,‘dolphins.’

It got to the point where I thought I was mistaking the breakers in the waves for ‘dolphins.’ I just couldn’t believe what I was seeing, so I thought my eyes were playing tricks on me. Granted, I knew I had indeed seen large schools, but I was struggling to process everything.

That sad thing is I had a full HD camcorder ready to film ... but the pilot had already asked for everyone to stop using electronics. So, no footage. It’s killing me now--I would have posted it for everyone here.

I have no problem wi harvesting marine life for human food, but the thought of killing a shark just for a fin and discarding the rest, esp if it's an endangered species, is a bit much. some poachers will kill a rhino just for it's horn and leave the carcass to rot. are these shark fins and rhino horns that valuable?
