Increased risk of shark attack

WHEN: September – November 2021

WHERE:

      • California, Texas & Florida Coasts
      • East Coast of U.S.
      • East Coast of S. Africa
      • West & East Coasts of Australia
      • Isla Santa Cruz, Galapagos.

WHY: Migration pattern brings Great White sharks of all maturity levels closer to shore as they head to deep waters. As they migrate they will feed on any available prey that they encounter in route.

Be Shark Wise and stay safe!

      • Check the tides before you go into the ocean. If high tide is higher than normal, please stay out of the ocean.
      • Check fishing reports in the area that your considering for your ocean activity. If fish activity is high, please stay out of the ocean.
      • Check the moon phase. If it is at or near a full moon, please stay out of the ocean.
      • Listen to your gut! If something feels off, please stay out of the ocean.

Increased Chance of Shark Attack October & November 2019

WHEN: October and November 2019

WHERE: Coasts of California, Hawaii, Florida and the entire East Coast of U.S.

WHY:

  • During High Tide the risk increases. The Full moon creates a higher tide than usual. The water level could be 5 to 6 feet higher in some locations, which provides increase depths along shorelines allowing Great White Sharks to come even closer to shore.
  • This time of year Great White Sharks are migrating to location off the coast of Mexico. Migration patterns brings Great White sharks of all maturity levels close to shore for feeding before they venture to deep sea.

 

Increased Chance of Shark Attack Oct 13 & 14

WHEN: Date: October 13 and 14, 2019

WHERE: Oceans Worldwide

WHY:

  • There is an increase in fish activity bringing in apex predators.
  • The Hunter’s Moon provides an increase in light to hunt by. The sun rise and moon set are within minutes of each other.
  • During High Tide the risk increases. The Full moon creates a higher tide than usual. The water level could be 5 to 6 feet higher in some locations, which provides increase depths along shorelines allowing Great White Sharks to come even closer to shore.
  • This time of year Great White Sharks are migrating to location off the coast of Mexico. In the US, Great whites migrate south from the San Francisco area cruising along the coast line. They will be out in deep sea for the next two months so are eating more frequently, similar to a bear before hibernation.
