Sharks returned to the Adriatic
Sharks were returning to the Adriatic sea. Moreover, populations of predators are increasingly encountered in the North, where the sharks never swam. This fact can not please scientists who earlier raised the alarm about the disappearance of sharks from the Adriatic, but can alert tourists – after all, they both have to face with marine life.
About the encounter with the shark in the Northern Adriatic sea the Austrian Times newspaper said a resident of Austria günther Rath, who along with his friend owns a diving school on the Croatian island of Krk.
However, a collision with a shark Rata has left only positive emotions. “It was just amazing. I am now one of the few divers who met with the shark. I was waiting for this meeting,” describes his emotions Rath.
According to him, the meeting took place last week, when he dived with his colleague. “We approached the shark and watched it within seven minutes. This is enough to have time to take pictures,” said RAHT, Austrian Times, showing the pictures. “Neither we nor the animal didn’t panic. Then the shark swam away”, he added.
However, it is unlikely the rapture will appreciate Rata Slovenian diver who swim in the North Adriatic white shark bit off his leg.The incident occurred in October 2008 and then caused a stir among scientists. Specialists neither then nor now, can’t explain how white shark swam in the cold waters of the Adriatic sea.
In this case, the incident with the Slovenian diver occurred off the coast of Montenegro, and the Austrian met with a shark near the Croatian island of Krk, which is much farther North of the Montenegrin coast.
By the way, earlier ichthyologists sounded the alarm about the fact that in the Adriatic sea virtually disappeared shark. In 2006 ichthyologists Italy, Slovenia and Croatia, have even decided to create a data Bank of animal habitats of the Adriatic, while many organisms do not disappear.
However, next year a bunch of sharks was spotted off the coast of Montenegro, is very pleased scientists, but it caused discontent among tourists is because the city authorities Bar closed the beaches. But then the experts said that “to see a shark – this is normal, as the bear in the woods” and tourists are again allowed to swim.
By the way, according to experts from the University of Florida, the probability of falling into the jaws of sharks a person minimum. They calculated that the odds of dying from a deer above 450 times from dogs – 45 times, snakes – in 37,5 times, from pigs in 6 times and from Cougars – 1.5 times. However, with regard to deer, they never attack people – but very often they fall under the wheels of cars and people die in traffic accidents.
