    Hi,

    The Adelaide Now paper has mentioned shark sightings for the past few weeks now - it (or maybe 'they') have been spotted around Glenelg, Henley and West Beach, so we have been warned. It won't put me off swimming or kayaking though - nothing like living on the edge!

    I would stick very close to the shore but even then, it isn't totally safe. Probably safer than driving in Adelaide mind you as the odds of being killed in a car crash must be far higher than a shark attack.

    ;)

    There's a ban on snapper fishing due to their breeding cycle, and the sharks love snapper. This means that as there's increased numbers of snapper about, there are likely to be more sharks in "metropolitan waters".

     

    You're unlikely to get caught by one paddling in the shallows of Moana, and the shark patrols now give plenty of warning if there's "one in the area". But they are out there - somewhere:jimlad: Swim between the flags on patrolled beaches and away from jettys, rocks and fishermen (with their bait) and you'll increase your chances of survival:)

     

    One of the first times I was out on my kayak, I near kacked me dacks when I saw a huge shadow in the water near me as I was about 200m out. It took me a while to work out that it was following me becuase it was in fact the shadow of the kayak on the sea bed:biglaugh:
