There is a healthy crop of seal pups.

The water is colder this year.

The sharks are hanging around the seals in Mission Bay.

They have helicopters flying over on a regular basis.

There really seems to be more these last few years.

I dont think they were unheard of along the California coast. Correct me if im wrong,There have always been reports of them off the coast of San Fransisco. I know they tend to have precise routes that they take during certain times of the year..Some go from Northern California to Mexico and some as far as Hawaii and back but the ones that traveled to Mexico tended to stay in deeper waters. Maybe the fishing industy is pushing them closer to shore to make there journey. Im no sharkspert just remember reading/hearing somthing along those lines.

Drowning whilst being eaten to death by something I can't see (with huge teeth) is very high up on my list of 'Things I Probably Won't Like.'

I wonder how many people will end up being eaten before others learn to stay out of the water.

I find it ironic to hear people talk about their fear of sharks while they are driving 80mph in bumper to bumper freeway traffic in S. Cal.

You are a thousand times more likely to be killed by a teen talkin on their cell or a drunk in a car, than swimming in the Pacific.

Fair point.

It's not like you can punch a car in the nose and it stops killing you.

I agree, shark attacks were almost unheard of along the Southern California coast until recently. The only shark attacks that happened, were North, where the water was colder. Surfed San Diego for years, and there were only two times that I remember a great white sighting. They did make us get out of the water, but no one was ever bitten, or killed.


That is why I said Southern California, live up North now and there are a lot more sharks up here. I do not really surf anymore, the water is too cold and I see a lot of sharks.


1970's - No Shark Attacks in Southern California
1980's - 1 attack in Southern California
1990's - 1 attack in Southern California
2000's - 2 attacks in Southern California

List of Fatal or Unprovoked Shark Attacks in the United States

There are also many more shark "encounters" than there used to be, or they are being reported more often. Glad that I never had a shark encounter, as that would have probably kept me out of the water forever.

dunno bout that there buddy....

I mean there was this photoshopped shark photo of a shark swimming downtown in a city hit by hurricane Irene...
yes it was fake...

but doesn't prevent it from happening..

i mean if 2012 means BIG mixup of all that is.. tsunamis.. hurricanes.. floods... water being everywhere.. and the scavengers of the ocean coming in to eat more than what ever was there in the first place....

then that's a phenomenon i think we'll see more and more of...

thus... do da maffs...

if 2012 = more floods than ever in history....
and floods = animals + fish + people + sharks
then animals + fish + people + sharks = people eaten by sharks.

....

Thank you for the response, as I had wondered if it seemed like there were more. Someone I know lives in La Jolla, and they said that they see many more sharks or hear about shark sightings, in the last few years. Hopefully this is just a trend, as that does not sound like fun! Send them back up here, no one here really swims anyway.

That is the truth.

You are way more likely to get killed getting to the beach.

It just seems with my recent luck...

I will be chosen for dinner.

Is that 1 in 1,000,000 figure for dying from a shark attack for the overall population or for people that swim or surf in shark areas? For example, if i don't drive, i am not going to die from a car accident (unless it hits me). But if the odds for dying in a car accident are determined by comparing the number of deaths to the overall population then you will get a bizarre result.

I will simplify it with some made up numbers...

1) 50,000 people die in car accidents in a year
2) There're 300,000,000 people in the country
Result: 1 in 6000 will die from a car accident

But what if I changed it to..

1) 50,000 people die in car accidents in a year
2) There're 200,000,000 people in the country that're vulnerable to car accidents
Result: 1 in 4000 will die from a car accident

If I compare to overall population the chances might look ok, but if I change it to only the population that's actually vulnerable then I get a number that's less in my favor.

See where I'm going with this?

I know I am ignorant. I am not even sure what I'm asking.

I also wonder how many cases are unreported or how many times sharks are tempted...

Like how many seal-like things do they sit and watch, wondering...

Better hope that their food source is in good supply and that seals don't start imitating humans.

Nobody knows the guys name.

They have these new cameras the strap to their wrists.

I don't think the guy saw it until he reviewed his video.

If he saw it...He probably needs a new wetsuit.

That's an image that will stay with me awhile.

I guess if you had to go...Might as well be a shark.

At least there would be a cool youtube video of it.

sorry to go a lil offtopic

but these headlines, and the current hollywood trend of remakes.

i wonder when Jaws will become the next "new" big movie out.

on topic, one can tell how sharks are good spirited animals judging on how they really dislike the way we taste.

"ewww! i accidently chewed another of those humans"
is a big discussion topic in the shark world
