Helicopter crew warns paddle-boarders about nearby sharks

Helicopter crew warns paddle-boarders about nearby sharks

Just the day before, 10 other young great whites were spotted feeding very close to the Long Beach shore. The Orange County Sheriff's Department urged paddleboarders in the area to exit the water calmly and swiftly. Some estimates say this unintended catch, or "bycatch", is 40% of the world's total catch, or about 63 billion pounds a year.

"The reason why I think we're seeing more sharks is because we've protected them".

Not only is this area just outside the wave break that's ideal for catching stingrays, but it's also warmer than the water located farther offshore, he said.

Paddle-boarders off the coast of California had a shock, after a shark alert was issued to them by police helicopter.

What are the chances of getting attacked by a shark while swimming at local beaches? And it's odd to see them this early.

'You are paddleboarding next to approximately 15 great white sharks.

Learning about sharks well enough to help them survive and thrive will balance the ecosystem, Fischer said, to ensure that there is an abundance of fish for generations to come.

Should SoCal residents be afraid to frolic in the surf?

Because juvenile sharks don't hunt larger marine mammals, they're much less likely to mistake a swimmer for their typical prey.

That city's fire department warned beachgoers to enter the water at their own risk. You have to go with the lifeguards' recommendations.

Above: Declines in estimated relative abundance for coastal shark species: (A) hammerhead, (B) white, (C) tiger, and (D) coastal shark species; and oceanic shark species: (E) thresher, (F) blue, (G) mako, and (H) oceanic whitetip.

Nosal said he agrees.

Remember when you were a kid and you heard two old wives tales about sharks?

People have to remember: Spring and summer have always been shark season in Southern California.

"We haven't seen signs of those young sharks actually being a potential threat to humans".
