Galapagos sharks seen off the North Shore of Oahu.
Although it is legal to bait sharks to kill them. Misguided people are attempting to ban offshore shark encounters. These sharks are pelagic animals and do not hunt in shallow water or on reefs.
They are already dangerous predators. Few humans spend time in their open ocean habitat.
It always amazes me that people can legally slaughter marine life wholesale, but when businesses arise to allow people to see these animals alive and in their element opposition always arises.
I would suggest these people lobby to end longlining, shark fishing, and overfishing.
