A look over the years shows that many people around the world have sighted or even directly experienced mermaids. Here’s a timeline of some of the major sightings and experiences, including Christoper Columbus, John Smith, and William Shakespeare.

With all the commercial fishing going on worldwide i find it very unlikely they exist given the fact not even one, ever, has bee caught in a trawling net.
Then you have all the other things going on at sea/ in the oceans, war games, scuba diving, treasure hunting, oil drilling, gas drilling, other mineral reclamation etc....and they have never spotted one either...ever.
