Comments: Greetings Alexander,
You have a great website - we have just discovered it, and have only begun to explore it. We have a question about Ron & Valerie Taylor. We wonder if you know how to get hold of, and purchase, copies of some of their work.  We have the Inner Space series and Blue Water, White Death already.  We want to buy many more:   Blue Wilderness, The Silver Jacket (magazine), Shark Hunters, Playing with Sharks, any footage on the use of the chainmail shark suit, Shadow Over the Reef, Shark Pod, and Shadow of the Shark.

We have written to Valerie herself, but she said she can't help us, because she knows nothing about copying videos, nor exactly where they are. She said Ron Taylor Productions was passed down to their nephew Jonathon, but we don't get a response from him. So, we wonder if you can help. Undoubtedly, we will buy material you have available, too.   We love the ocean - sharks in particular.

Bless you this New Year. Hope to hear from you,

Bob and Clary
Sharkman: Hi guys. Thank you for your comments. I am afraid that I cannot be of any much help. The few items that I have that include Ron & Val were either sent to me as gifts or I managed to find in some old bookshops. Their stuff is very hard to come by. With some luck you might try to find a few items on the internet.

I have one blue shark baby in a can, male, about 84cm long . Got it as a present from My dad-1979. Can i send i The pictures of My tattoos?

Sharkman: Hello Maria. Thank you for your comment. There is a lot of information about the Sharks / Cancer issues on the internet. All you need do is google the question. Recent findings have indicated that sharks do get some types of cancer.

Yes, please feel free to email me your tattoo photos.

Comments: Dear Sir, I send this question to fyi@popsci.com already, and you should talk to Popular Science magazine about it. That is, if taking the fins off sharks to make shark fin soup my make them extinct, then could cloning scientists who are growing artificial beef and other meat in the lab, then could they commercially grow shark fin meat in the lab to be sold to all Asian restaurants instead of killing sharks to get it?

Comments: Awesome site. I love sharks. Have since about the age of 9. I am 33 now. My fave is the great white, followed closely by the tiger and mako. My favorite gentle shark is by far the leopard shark. I love reading about sharks, have quite the collection myself of sharks, and find it awesome reading about others who have a great love of sharks too. My one dream is to be in the water with a shark.

Just viewed your 2 hour tv show, we literally sat with mouths agape (not in an agressive manner)

Used to live in tthe Florida keys (where everyone dives everyday), you've opened our eyes to an entirely new concept

Not thinking about trying your technique's, I personally can not imagine, but deeply admire your sense of adventure & bravery

I was ever the one on the boat, tugging the lines

BRAVO...to you

Comments: Hi there,

first of all i want to congratulate you for your work and the way you explain things about sharks to a large public with this website.
I'm also fanatic of sharks and i'm actually studying biology at the university to redirect later in oceanography.
Something is still disturbing me about your website, why do you have to put such sort of things on it...

"Total Number of Abortions,
1973 - 1999 = 37,836,648" when you compare it to shark attacks...

And this stupide joke about an atheist in the "cartoon sharks" corner :

[...the atheist screams, "Oh God! Save me!"...]

I respect what you do but please... please... keep your stupids old farts beliefs for yourself... this website is visited by different sorts of people from the all world, you have to respect their convictions.
(I'm atheist and pro-abortion)

Keep in mind that atheists in USA (for example) have the same consideration today that strangers who where victims of racism several years ago or homophobia.

Well, sorry for my awful english and i wish you lot of wonderful other dives.

Sharkman's Comment: Hi Jérôme. Thank you for your comments. With reference to your two comments, please note that I am not saying anything against abortion or atheists. In the abortion issue, I am only quoting numbers that are facts. These are not "old Farts beliefs".... this is reality. I do not go into the merits of is it good or not.

As for the Atheist joke...... well its just a joke and it should be taken as one. No one complained because it involves God.

Comments: Hello,
My name is Sara and I have always been fascinated and humbled by sharks. I actually am going to school for a degree that will allow me to work with these amazing animals. I really want to deal in behavioral studies of the Hammerhead Shark. I have a few questions though. With my research on the web I came across your web page and saw all the experience you have had in this business. I was just wondering if you know of any specific programs I should look into and what type of education might be accepted or wanted in this business. I figure that some measure of biology is needed, but do I need a major or just a minor in biology? I understand that you may not have the answers to these or any of my questions, but any information you could give me to help point me in the correct direction will be much appreciated. Thank you for any help you can give.

Sharkman's Comment: Hi Sara. nice to hear from you. Well the first thing that you have to do is go for Marine Biology. I am sure that your guidance teacher can lead you in the right directions. You can also click here for a direct link to some more information about what you need. Good luck.

Comments: I am finishing a Biology/Secondary Education degree. I am interested in a photo for my high school classroom. I was refered to this site from another photographer site. The photo I had was lost in a computer failure. It was a photo of a man sitting on a surfboard looking into a wave and there was a giant shark in the wave. The previous site thought he had seen the picture but heard that it was a dolphin. Either way it was incredible and would definitely get a high school class interested in Biology and conservation. If you have any ideas or leads please let me know. This is the best site I have ever seen. Incredible.

Sharkman's Comment: Hi Greg. I think you are referring to the photo by KURT JONES. http://www.surfshooter.com/DolphinInfo.html
I hope that that is the one. There are many other fake photos going around on the net, but this is a real one and it is a dolphin.

My name is Tasia and I live in Logan Utah, it amazes me how I have always had this utter obsession with the shark. Your page is truly amazing. I have been looking at it for hours now. I also recently sent you some pictures of my shark tattoo. I am in collage right now at Utah State studying biology, wondering why actually. My life dream has just been to dive and take pictures of this magnificent creature of the sea. Hopefully one day I will be able to do this. If you have any suggestions they would very much appreciated. Or if you just want to get married I am ready! You are a man of my kind!

Sharkman's Comment: Hi Tasia. Still have not received your tattoo photos. Please resend. Thanks for your lovely comments ..and your proposal.

Sharkman's Comment: Hi Paige. Thanks for the note. Sad to read that people are hurting sharks at the island were you go. You should try to start a small group of friends that together can work to change the peoples ideas about sharks. Maybe you should also approach some NGO and ask for their help.

People have to stop shark finning in worldwide! Never tasted it before but know it's freakin' tasteless. A comment said on youtube when I was watching a video I luv shark fin soup the sharkfin tastes soo good. And another person said It's the chicken soup thats added inide to made it taste good--I wish they would helling take the sharkfin out! As you can see that I'm in your guestbook for '07.
I'm wondering what would it be like if they made a shark go limp and fin it.
Reply to this shark-mail.

Sharkman's Comment: Always say no to shark fin soup. It is tasteless and we need to save the sharks. All Finners should be Finned.

Comments: This website is so darn good. This is how I got so intrested in to sharks: I read a book about them. When I realized that they were endangered. So I started a team called P.P.S. (Please Protect Sharks). But most of the people made and went to the team P.K.S. (Please Kill Sharks). I didn't know what to do.

Sharkman's Comment: Hi Raymond. Thanks for your message. I agree that it is not easy to convince people that sharks need to be protected, but don't give up. The best that you can do is learn as much as possible about sharks and why they need to be protected so that you can discuss it with those that do not know the real facts. You can also take part in shark protection campaigns as well. There are many people that are changing their views about sharks so we are not alone.

I've always been very interested in great white sharks (I thought this may make you smile: http://www.abc4explore.com/greatwhitesharksong.html). I'll spend the summer studying in Malta University, and I'm planning to take a PADI open water diver course. However, I'm slightly scared now... tell me there's no risk of becoming some incredibly fascinating shark's meal, please! :) I'm really looking forward to my first real diving experience.
Thank you very much, KEEP IT UP!
Kind regards and safe divings,
Amaia.

Sharkman's Comment: Hi Amaia. Thanks for your message and the link. Yes I know about that song and the link. The guy studys white sharks in South Africa with my good friend Michael C. Scholl. Now about your diving.... we get many students from the university that learn to dive with us so if you are interested let me know. E-mail me privately and I will give you all the details. Do not worry about risks....there is no way you can be in danger here.

Sharkman's Comment: Hi Charlene. Thanks for your nice comments. Just imagine what would happen if I had to get a white shark to Malta!! First of all it is rather impossible, and secondly, I would get arrested since they are protected by law . I guess it is much easier for you to save some money and join me on one of my next trips to South Africa. It is not THAT expensive.

Also, if you decide you want to try diving again, just email me.

Comments: My tattoo is the second one on page 27, I've e-mailed you as requested on the web site but haven't heard back or why you need people with tattoos on your site to e-mail you.. If you need my permission, you have it. Keep up the good work, and keep up the great web site. I have another shark tattoo, are you ready for more?

Comments: Hi Sharkman!! first of all congrats for the great and informative site!! you really explained in detail and thats very important!! thumbs up!! all i wanted to do is to point out a small flaw in your website. you stated that you hated 2 things, boasty divers and spearfishing. I'm sure you meant "Abusive Spearfishing" and not generalising and just saying 'spearfishing'!! I m a spearfisher myself and i always respected small fish and even prizey catch who were still small like less than 2 kg groupers and small saragos. please do not generalise, most of us catch for food or for a living or to earn something extra.

if everyone would generalise i would be the first to condemn scuba diving!! (although i know in my heart not everyone is bad)!! the simple reason is that a lot of scuba divers and going down with their harpoons, find a nice hole full of saragos or some groupers at 25+m and destroying their den!! totally sick!!!! these may be divers that u trained urself!!!

so please do not generalise as i know for sure from friends as well that not all scuba divers do these stupidities. the same goes with spearfishers!! we train and use apnea to hold our breaths and come in contact with the sea and make a fair catch when available. but we always respect the sea and keep it clean.

please change the statement on your web i would really appreciate it. Thanks.

Thanks for your time and keep it up!! you are truly an Ambassador for Malta!! :)

Sharkman's Comment: Hi Wayne. First of all, I thank you for your nice comments. I also appreciate your comments about the spearfishing issue, and also respect your opinion.

I will now answer you with the same honesty that you wrote. First of all, please note that as you so rightfully pointed out, I wrote "Spearfishing" and not "Spearfishermen"!! This means that I hate the activity and not the person. Spearfishing does not only include breath holding, but also when done with scuba gear. I have been diving in our waters for over 35 years, and there was a time, which I now deeply regret, were I too was a spearfisherman (boy), and I have seen the total destruction and the massive reduction of fauna from our waters. This is caused by fishing and spearfishing. I can tell you of sites were Groupers, Breams, Selemas, Barracudas, Octopus, Stingrays, Squids....etc have been totally wiped out.

The biggest problems are that these creatures are being caught before they are adults and having had chance to reproduce. A 2 kg grouper is still a juvenile. Also please note that Groupers are listed as endangered species in the IUCN Red List and they should be protected.

Yes sadly there are divers that do spearfishing as well, but I can guarantee you that NONE of them have been trained by me. Anyone that has spearfishing interests was not / will not be trained by me.

My comment that I hate SPEARFISHING will stay and I am very sorry if that upsets you. As I said, I hate the act itself, not the person. I hope that you understand this.

Thanks.

Comments: WOW very impressive site!!!!!! It is not only a pleasure to know that there are people out ther that have respect and care for these awesome predators but whats more impressive to me is the "younger generation" really taking note of the seriousnous of protecting and caring about them. Like another gentlemen said we cant move mountains alone but educating people on the subject will help move it. This coming November I'm doing my first Great White Cage dive at the Farralon Islands off the coast of California. When I come back from the trip I will send pics. Keep up the great work and best regards.

Sharkman's Comment: Hi Rick. Yes it is great to see that the younger generations are taking interest in not only learning about sharks, but also helping to protect them. Good luck with your trip in November.

Very extensive information but you might consider text links rather than picture buttons. It'd make your pages tidier.

On sharks conservation, I remember watching a programme on either National Geographic or Animal Planet, there was a documentary on sharks (I think it was a shark week). The most "memorable" clip was FINLESS sharks piling at the bottom of the sea, drowning and dying. It'd be great if we could find that particular clip for your website. This should hopefully keep more people off shark fin soup.

All the best!

Comments: A very great site. I am a shark fanatic myself and collect everything to do with the white shark. I got a tattoo last year of the white shark, tearing as I finally got one. I am getting another one on my birthday apr.23 . My dream is to see a live white shark in its own habitat. I will always have this dream. As far as I am concerned it is the best animal out there. I have the same personality, lone hunter who enjoys just swimming on its own and not being bothered. I can send in my tattoo if you would like. I finally get to show it off this summer :O) I read your bio, you are a very interesting person. For now, tv and videos is all I can do, before I die I will see one for myself, the infamous white shark

Sharkman's Comment: Thanks Jody. Would love to see your tattoo.... and Happy Birthday. May your dreams come true.

Comments: I cannot believe that i have found someone who has done what i have always dreamed of doing. Since i was seven years old i have adored sharks. It is my dream to work with sharks and to better educate the world about them. You are my hero when i read that you started the fight to get great white sharks protected in Malta i was overjoyed. I am a shark enthusiast. today was my sixteenth birthday and as a present my mom is letting me get a tattoo i knew immediately that it would be of a shark. I dream of one day having the chance to do the kind of work that you do... to be able to help sharks and to see them up close. The only shark i have ever seen was a nurse shark and it was behind glass but still i found it breathtaking. The most inspiring thing to me was that you were not somebody with a university degree in a science of the ocean, you were merely someone who loves sharks and you made a difference. I should probable stop babbling... i'm really bad for that. I just want to thank you for everything you are doing for sharks. I only hope that one day i can be doing the same work that you are.

Sharkman's Comment: Thanks Emilie. Even you can help fight for shark protection now. All you have to try to do is to teach others what sharks truely are, and support some organization like SHARKMAN'S WORLD. Good luck for your dreams and do not forget to send me a photo of your tattoo when it is done.

I have recommended your site, and will continue to do so, to all I come in contact with, family, friends etc... One of my daughters has developed a great interest in sharks as well. My husband and I plan to move to Miami Beach, Florida this spring so that I may persue my dream of becomming a marine biologist/shark scientist and protector of these beautiful creatures. I just wanted to thank you for the inspiration and for sharing your knowledge with us.

Sharkman's Comment: Hi Mario. This (in)famous quote from the "Jaws" preview is very incorrect and misleading. Sharks, and that includes the White Shark, are NOT mindless eating machines, and they DO NOT attack and devour anything. If it was so, then the number of fatal shark / human incidents would be far more greater than it is today. Take a look at the statistics one the shark attacks page.

Comments: Fantastic website. I have loved sharks all my life, in particular The Great White. Just recently in June 2005, I travelled to South Austrailia and Cage Dived with Andrew Fox. There are no words to fully describe the incredible feeling this left me with. It just makes me want to fight for these guys all the more...to actually try and make a difference. I have 453 photos from the trip. I cried when I left and feel like I have left part of my heart there with those sharks. I also adopt a Great White through the Fox Shark Research Foundation. I want to do all I can to get more involved. My husbands family are all from Malta, hence the last name, Camilleri. Would love to make a donation, can you accept money order? Hope to hear back from you. Cheers, Jodie!

Sharkman's Comment: Hi Jodie. Yes I can very well understand how you felt after your White Shark Experience. I always feel the same with every shark encounter. Thank you for your kind words and donation offer. I will be in touch with you soon.

I really thank you for the invest you did and you´ll do in the future for sure to make the Sharks a part of us.
And hopefully the Human being unterstand that this Creature was there before and we should respect them instead to Hunt, Kill and finaly Eat them or kick them dead Bodys back in the Sea just for fun.

Thanks again Alex.
Keep going on

Right now, I'm writing a release about one of the Chinese restaurants in this hotel and we're having a shark fin soup special promotion for the whole month. Being an environmentalist, I find this thing a bit of a dilemma. But so far, although I'm searching for articles about the good things of eating shark fins, I keep finding websites like yours. Websites that are put up to safe the sharks. Thank God for this. Keep up the work. We can't let this amazing creature be wiped out of the seas. PS: you're cute!

Sharkman's Comment: Hi Yuska. There is nothing good that comes out of eating shark fin soup. You should actually try to get the Hotel to take it off the menu. Write about how many sharks are being savagely killed by humans just for the sake of a plate of soup!! Speak the truth.

It is too easy to fear them and spread hate about them. Knowledge leads you to appreciate them & love them too....like you my dream is to come in conact with one sometime. Alex, well done for the information & the research you have shared with all of us. Feared are those misunderstood. Good Luck

Sharkman's Comment: Hello Greta. Thank you for your message and kind words. Yes, sadly movies like Jaws, Deep Blue Sea, and others do make it easier to install fear in those that know nothing about sharks. This was one of the reasons why I launched this website some years ago. People need to learn the truth about sharks. Thank you for your support.

Comments: Thank you for writing me back. I will be sure to tell my sis the facts. I have another question how come when aquariums try to keep a great white in a tank it always dies? personaly I think they should leave the great whites in the wild. These creatures are amazing after going on your site I want to study great whites for a career. You have inspired me to do so by your site so thank you.

Sharkman's Comment: Hello again Lizzy. The White Shark is a shark that needs wide open ocean. It travels long distances and never stays in one place for a long time. Restricting it to a small confined area does not allow the shark a lot of freedom of movement and this will effect it badly. In my opinion, all creatures that live in wide open spaces and migrate over large distances should not be kept in an aquarium or a zoo.

Comments: Ok I can understand that you have a great love for the great white and for all sharks, however I read on your site that you have been cage diving. I strongly disagree with this practise as it teaches sharks to associate people with food. What do you think they are going to think when you put burley and fish guts into the water and then dangle a human in a cage in front of them??? Ofcourse they are going to start thinking we will taste great! This therefore increases the number of attacks on humans by great whites (as can be seen off the coast of South Australia and Western Australia in the past 3 years)... and this ultimately leads to the hunting and killing of great white sharks. So if you truly love sharks "shark man" I would be boycotting cage diving. You can not try to tell me it is needed for research purposes because all you are learning from that experience is that they are very big and are attracted to the smell of blood and guts (something you already know!). Nothing observed from cage diving perspective is any different or new to what has been previously learnt using this technique!!! I hope you take my comments into consideration - Luke

Sharkman's Comment: Hi Luke. Thank you for taking the time to share your opinion and views about cage diving. Whilst respecting your opinion, I must point out the following very important points based on facts.

First of all, there is NO SCIENTIFIC (or other) PROOF that sharks associate humans with food because of cage diving, and thus causing more shark attacks. On the contrary, areas in Australia, South Africa, USA etc.... where shark incidents occur are not areas were cage diving takes place, but much further away!! As for the incidents you refer to in South and Western Australia, there is no increase from previous years and this is proved by the official statistics.

Secondly, during cage diving, there is no food close to the cages and it is very very rare that a shark bumps (let alone attack) a cage. Do not believe what you see in some Cage Diving Documentary!! Remember that TV is all about ratings and for that, they need action and suspense and it is on these filmings that they tie bait to the cages to make the sharks attack and bite them. This is not what happens in real life, and this I am totally against.

Finally, observing sharks underwater from cages does help research and conservation in more ways then one and the results are ongoing. First of all, surface viewing does not always allow easy observation and study of:
i) Shark sex identification.
ii) How sharks behave socially when others of their kind are around.
iii) How sharks react under all kinds of different situations (new experiments and tests are carried out regularly)

Cage diving has changed many people's opinion about sharks and everyone that goes cage diving always ends up respecting and appreciating sharks for what they actually are .... magnificent misunderstood creatures and not some senseless man-eating demons.

I told her if she's close by shore nothing will happen but no. I need u to convince her to go in the water so we will have fun next time plus she is older than me!!!! Plz help!

Sharkman's Comment: Hi Lizzy (& Sis), Thanks for the comments about my site. The chances of getting attacked by a shark are so low that they are not even calculated. Just think about the millions of people that enjoy the sea everyday and the handful of incidents reported every year. There is a much higher risk of getting mugged on the street or being involved in a traffic accident on the way to the beach. As long as you follow the general shark safety rules of the area where you are swimming, than your beach days will be something to enjoy without any shark fears at all.

I know they don't so how come that the maltese man who was swimming with Smedley (the only 'shark'victim in maltese waters) end up with fish scales attached to his belly when the big fish rubbed against him prior to the attack? I don't think it was a shark that killed Smedley and this should be publicised for the sharks' sake. Keep up the great work. I'm all the way behind you.

I've just been to Vic Hislop's site...that was the most disgusting thing I've ever seen. Your's is so much better, I love it!

PS-It says on the site that some people call him the shark man...what a bunch of b***s***.

Comments: Hey Sharkman,

You have an amazing site!! I love the background music too! I really like to see this kind of site that tries to put to rest the "monster" image of sharks. I was at one time a product of the post-JAWS phenom...but my views are so much different now. I participate on a discussion board:

http://p083.ezboard.com/fsharks77551sharkattacks

Where there seems to be a fair mix of both positive and negative images concerning sharks. In fact, we have a guy who posts quite often who promotes an Australian tourism/booking site that includes a section concerning Vic Hislop and his ideas/theories, etc. If anyone likes a good heated debate, then please feel free to come on over...it gets interesting to say the least! Anyway, again....GREAT SITE!!!

Sharkman's Comment: Hi Duane, thanks for your comment and discussion board link. I might check it out, but I doubt if I will take part in it because I have had quite a few clashes with some guys that blind-foldedly support Hislop's Idiotic mentality, and to be honest, I do not have time to waste on those types.

But know I've got this feeling that I want to see them in the nature. So, how and where should I practise to dive so that I really can be sure that I know what I do when I'm in the liquid element?
Nice time and good work

Comments: As promised I did return to see what you would do with my last entry. One thing I always do is give credit where credit is due and I do thank you for choosing to leave the message there and reply to it. It doesn't mean I agree with you, but I do give you credit for taking on board comments and not simply deleting the message.

In respect to your comments about my entries being idiotic, that is your view and you have a right to express it. I take no offence but I do personally see tattooing as a form of self abuse (along with multiple body piercing) and I consider promotion of such to be irresponsible. In my view tatooing and body piercing is akin to branding cows and horses with a red hot iron, or ear clipping sheep where a piece of live flesh is simply gouged out in order to "Identify them". It really is just abuse of animals. That is my own view, you do not have to agree with me, I do not seek to change any ones opinion, merely state my own. However as stated I do give credit to you for leaving the message there. In respect to your site, yes it is informative, and like I have said before, I respect all creatures, human or animal, they all have a place in this world.

Sharkman's Comment: Welcome back Mr. X. Thanks for your interesting comments. I to do not seek to change your opinion, but I fail to see the connection between tattoos and branding or clipping of animals. As you very well said clippings and branding are just an abuse. Tattooing is a piece of art that a person wants on his body. Most of the time it is in honour of something that they love, as in with the shark tattoos on this site.

Anyway... I wish you and the readers of this site a Very Happy New Year.

Comments: I have been here before about a month ago but never left a message but after much thought I had to come back and do so. It will be interesting to see if you choose to delete it or reply, I will return to see if you have any comment.

My first comment is, you say you are dedicated to sharks. Well the entry graphic on this site is a photo of a set of shark jaws, therefore a shark had to die to have that photo taken. A bit hypocritical in my view.

My second comment is, How dare you compare yourself to one of the greatest conservastionists this world has ever seen. He puts his money where his mouth is buying huge tracts of land in every continent, not for material gain but to save it from being developed and exploited and therefore kept for future generations of animals. If you don't know who I am talking about read your own site. You made the comparison, not me.

My third comment is simple, Promotion of tattooing one's person is totally irresponsible. Tattoos are a disgrace and should never be promoted.

I love all animals, they all have a place in this world and a right to exist, it isn't man's task to destroy but to protect.

Be back in a week or two to see what you have said or if you have deleted this entry. I personally think you think too highly of yourself, your site is full of what you think you have achieved. Many men have achieved greatness but not through promoting themselves but by doing good on behalf of other things being they human or animal.

Sharkman's Comment: Dear Mr. X. First of all, Welcome back. Secondly, I see no reason why I should delete your comments. You are entitled to your opinion.

As to your first comment about the shark jaws.... The Idea is that one is entering "inside a shark" to see what it actually is. It is sadly true that a shark had been killed, (but not by me) but the good thing is that those jaws have now served to introduce and change many peoples opinion about sharks. There is nothing hypocritical about that.

Your second and last comments... Sorry my friend but they are baseless. I do not compare myself to anyone and I surely do not boast about who I am or what "I have achieved". Read my page properly and you will see that I always say that I am "just a diving instructor" and whatever was achieved, was always done with a lot of help from others.

As to your comment about tattoos..... well, that is so idiotic that I will not even bother to answer.

I love all animals too and I do anything I possibly can to protect them. This is why this website was set up.

Happy New Year.

Comments: Great site Sharkman!

Truly great pictures of your trips in 2001 and 2002. What a magnificent creature Big Whitey is. It is such a shame most people only associate them with the gruesome bloody carcasses sometimes hauled onto the shore or the killing machine in Jaws (the movie). In the wild it’s the most magnificent sight in the animal kingdom and one of our last great predators. Hopefully more sites like yours will help people understand the beauty of this king of the depths.

A quote from Sharks: Myth and Reality by Cafierio and Jahoda (1994)

Of the great white, writer Jim Crockett wrote, "A friend of mine claims to have seen God. Well, I've seen the Great White. I guess were about even."

All the best and keep up the good work

Andrew

Comments: Hi, have always had a great interest in sharks especially the Great White. I have only ever seen one and that was at Vic Hislops shark museum in Australia.
I would love to go cage diving and see them for real as there is little chance here in England although we do get the odd report of a sighting.
Keep up the good work.
I'll be visiting again

Sharkman's Comment: Hi Bruce. Thanks for your comments. I hope that you do get to see a "Live" White shark, and not one like in Vic's Road Show. i bet you heard a lot of wrong things about sharks there too. The Guy is a real nutcase!!

Comments: Very good and complete website! I always be fascinated by sharks but I hope never see them during my next divings! Swimming with dolphins is also a very captivating experience and more safety!! I really hope that one day human being will take better care of the earth and off all those magnificents animals we can have the great chance to meet. Take care!!

Sharkman's Comment: Hi Dzof. Thanks for your comments. What's so bad with seeing Sharks while diving? It is the best experience you can have, and thousands of people are doing it everyday. It is only there that one can truly experience the real beauty of a shark. I wish you many great dives, and if you are ever in Malta, we can dive together.

Comments: Great to visit again, was inspired by the tattoo pages and have finally worked to get my own, will email you the result, was a 3 time sit down, have a nice mako on the left upper arm chasing a yellow fin tuna, kind of my idea and answer to all those rose and wire bands people do, this is my second tattoo and seems my artist is amazed at the size I go for, first covered my right calf very well with a stalking alligator(Big Gator Fan here) now he is happy to play a part in my new one and has invited me to the east coast tattoo convention here in Jersey for the final touches. He used an old style, Japanese idea of gray stressed water to show the movement and will finalize in front of many onloookers this Saturday!! Great for me and great for him!! Email due when redness and swelling are gone!! Keep up the great work here and stay safe!

Comments: First I'll congratulate you for your effort of helping the sharks.
It's even difficult to explain the swiss people what sharks really are and how they life. A lot of them have got the picture that a shark is a blood-hungry monster, who kills everyone he's meeting on his way.
But I try it very hard to explain and show the people what sharks really are.
An example:
i wouldn't go surfing at a beach where is written that there are sharks and I also don't know how to react if I would 'meet' a shark.
i find a good idea is to give courses to the visitors of a beach how to act and react on a 'shark-beach'.
But there is again a 'hunger of money' (-; , like everywhere.
Thank you for your effort.

Then I've got a question:
I go every jear in the north of sicily, next to the eolian islands, at Milazzo.
Where are there sharks around this area, I'm very interessed to see a shark in freedom.
Fabrizio, Switzerland

Sharkman's Comment: Hello Fabrizio. Glad to see that you too help to protect sharks. I am sorry but I am not familiar with the sharks around north of sicily.

Honestly I have never seen such a beautiful side of great white sharks. Thanks for showing this through your website.

you have a wonderful source here and facts about this fantastic creature...i have liked sharks since i was ten years old and saw the first jaws movie... i was on vacation and i did not get into the water after that movie for fourteen days,,,,,then i became interested in sharks, because it had frightened so many with its bad reputations, through that movie. So i began to read and learn and collect everything about great white sharks,,,,, and now i love them,,,, i think they are the worlds most perfect creature still after millions of year in evolution, it is so perfect for its purpose. i did a tatto of it on my shoulder, and now i am going to do the jaws picture from the movie on my hip... quite qrazy, and i also want to dive with them, i got a diving certifikate when i became 30. my dream is to dive and see them at south africa ,,,,

Everything in my office either deals with weather or sharks. Toys, pens, staplers, books, video, you name it, it's here. My nickname in high school, ironically, was "Sharkman." It's so good to know there are others out there who are trying to preserve sharks and their rights as natural beings. People see my shark tattoos and ask about sharks, so I send them here. Maybe they will understand where it is we are coming from. G'Day to you, and happy diving.

Comments: This site is awesome, I was looking to get another shark tat (mine I got when I turned 18, now he's 4 yrs old and needs a friend) so I was cruzin the web for ideas. Wow.

My love affair with sharks started when I was 5, I snuck into the loungeroom and watched jaws (no one knew I was there), I loved that movie, I cried my eyes out when the shark died though. Ever since then it has been my dream to become a shark researcher, I'm in my 3rd year at uni studying to do just that.

My first up-close-and-personal experience with a shark (I'm not talking about at aquariums) was when I was 15, bodyboarding on the NSW south coast. I was waiting for a good wave to ride in and felt something beneath me, I'm not sure what species he was (though he was definatly male, I saw the claspers), I'd say he was just under 2 metres long, he was a beauty!
I'm not going to say I wasn't scared, I was very nervous! But he showed only curiosity, no aggression, so I figured I was safe. That basically sealed the whole love of sharks thing for me, it is my dream to swim with a shark again.

I'll e-mail a pic of my tat when I get a good one, I'll defiantly return here!!!!!!

!Thanx Sharkman!
Amelise

Sharkman's Comment: Thanks Amelise, for your comments and for sharing your story. I hope that you will have many more shark encounters. Looking forward to seeing your tattoo.

Comments: Hi, while looking for some good shark-Pages, I came to yours and I've only got one word to describe it: AMAZING !!!!! I mean, almost everything you want to know about sharks is in here! I was working in Taba (Egypt, Red Sea) for about a year, on one of my dives I encountered my first real live shark, a white tip reef shark, I was amazed, the beauty of that moment when it swam by, was what made me a huge shark-fan. Know I'm trying to know as much as possible about sharks, and I'm planning on doing some more actual shark-diving. Thanks for hosting such a great Page and I'll be checking it out every few days!!! Cheers, Kjell

Sharkman's Comment: Hi Kjell. Thanks for your kind words and comments. I can very well understand how you felt when you saw your first Shark. My First was also a Whitetip in the Red Sea, and that is one still one of my favourite sharks.

Comments: I wonder how many shark supporters would change their opinion after one of their loved ones were taken from them by a great white or tiger shark. Granted there are some species that could be considered harmless in most situations, but come on. As to Vic Hislop, give the guy some credit, he only names the great white, the tiger, the hammerhead and the white pointer as maneaters and their numbers should be culled to protect the rest of the seas creatures( and man). History will prove him right.

Sharkman's Comment: Hi Darryl. Thank you for your message. It seems to me that you know very little about sharks in general, and what you know is also not entirely correct. You also know very little about Vic.

There are nearly 450 different sharks in our oceans and of these, only a handful have been known to attack without being provoked. That is very different from your comment of "some species that could be considered harmless in most situations". There is not a single shark in the world that is a "Maneater". This is just a fabricated word that people like Hislop use to scare fellow humans and to justify their Shark killing Ego. Hislop himself has killed many harmless sharks and he brags about it. He also believes that every victim of Drowning or lost at sea is a Shark attack fatality.

And for the record..... Seems that you do not even know that the White Pointer is just another name used by you Australians, for the Great White shark!!

Comments: HI, I love everything about your site, because I can tell that you are devoted to Sharks, and there just arnt enough people like you about! I am also a shark fan, and I love Great Whites. It is also my dream to dive with them in Dyer Island, South Africa. I was going to live out my dream this summer, but could not afford the plane fair!! I just wanted to write to reccommend a book that is in my possesion, and has been read thousands of times, because it is so fantastic- You may have already read it!; 'SHARKS SILENT HUNTERS OF THE DEEP';Readers Digest- Introduction by Ron and Valerie Taylor. It documents the attitudes to sharks throughout history, and its focus is on their demonisation!! I wondered also if you had visited Vic Hislop's site. It is the most horrible thing I have ever seen, and I must admit, I was forced to tears! He detests Sharks, and believes that they should all be killed!! He describes his torturous acts, posts horrible pictures of dead and bleeding sharks, and tries to turn people against sharks by telling a story of a little whale killed by Tiger Sharks. Its not really a very sad story, its just about Sharks living out their lives the way they are meant to!! I posted a defensive E-mail. I reccommend you do too! We must get the site banned!! The sadest thing comes when you visit his guestbook site, he has a huge following- many people think the same!!

Sharkman's Comment: Hi Jennifer. Thank you for your very interesting message. Yes, the book that you mentioned is one of my favourites too. In fact, it is also listed in my Shark Library page.

As to your comment about Vic Hislop.... Yes, I know all about him and in my opinion he is not even worth bothering about. This Shark Killer says nothing but lies and this idiot has been many times in trouble with the authoroties and no one takes him seriously anymore. Sure you will find a FEW that will agree with him and support him, but they are only a FEW. There are many more people supporting sharks and the numbers are growing everyday.

I hope that you too will have your dream of going to see the whites at Dyer Island.... and when there, you will see how many more people go to see sharks everyday, than Vic Hislop will get in his sick show in a month.

Comments: Alex, Thank you. I picked up the book about the shark attacks of 1916. Twelve Days of Terror. I got an A for my paper. I still think your web site is the best. We need to go diving together. How about Cape Town in South Africa. Lots of Great Whites.
P.S. I still want to go to Malta. Dazy

Sharkman's Comment: Hi Dazy. Glad you got an "A". Well Done. Hey....any time you want to Dive in S.A. or Malta, just let me know. Will gladly sort things out for you.

Comments: hey sharkman im 13 teen and i'm doing my assignment on sharks. I didn't know much about sharks till I saw this page. it is really sad that the sharks get finned like that it made me cry when I saw that picture of the shark marriage it make me sick that people do that to sharks I think that because humans have a power to be in control at the top of the food chain they should be responsible with there power and not kill sharks. it is so cruel and sickens me the way they are treated because they are wonderfully creatures especialy the whale shark that is awesome how big it is

yeah the website was cool I reckon it was cool how you did the sharky for kids thing yeah you know how you to about that one person can make a deference thing its great but how do you get involved with shopping cruelty to sharks and stuff
I've been scuba diving with mum and Amy and an instructor once of a beach and I went again deeper of a boat it was so awesome I got to see a reef shark and picked up some shark teeth of the ocean bottom and I been 5times all up I cant wait to get a medical and do this diving course thing when im 14 there meant to let ya do it when your 13 but the doctors wouldn't give me a medical or something like that
anyway cya later
Will
Keep up the good work

Sharkman's Comment: Hiya Will. Thank you for your comments. Yes I agree with you that Shark Finning is very cruel, and it should be stopped. We can all help make a difference, even you. Two simple things that you can start with, is to start telling your friends how cruel shark finning is, and you can all spread the word around. Also, you can explain to your family and friends that they should not buy from or go to places that serve Shark Fin Soup. You must also tell the owners of these places that you are not going there under protest. This can start as a small thing, but it can easily grow.

One more thing..... keep tuned to my Kids Page for some news that might be there.

Comments: HI, great site you have here!Lots of interesting shark information and pictures.I watched a programme recently about great whites off Dyer Island.The researcher now no longer studies them there as theres is too many tourists out there looking at the sharks. They now feel the shark behaviour they will witness will be different because of these vistors so have now moved to study them in a different location.I would love to see a great white close up in the wild but does this raise the point that maybe we should be leaving them alone and not interfering and changing their behaviour? I'd like to know your opinions on that.
Keep up the good work on the site its fab.

Sharkman's Comment: Hi Ginger. Thank you for your message and comments. You have put forward a very interesting question. There are different ways to look at the issue, and I always like to see the proverbial "two sides of the coin".

On one side we have the good that these Shark viewing trips are doing. They are getting people close to the sharks and as a result, there is more of a positive outlook towards these magnificent creatures. People are now getting to appreciate sharks and even get concerned about their conservation and protection.

On the other side, we have the invading of the sharks domain and the interference with their behavior. These sharks are now being teased with baits and in a way, used for show.

Which is wrong and which is right? Not enough research has so far been done into whether humans are actually interfering with the sharks, or that they are being conditioned. Remember that although research has shown that sharks can and do learn up to some level, it takes a lot of work and hours on the same shark before he is conditioned. The Sharks around Dyer Island are not the same ones every day and they are all moving around. Sure, some do return but not on a fixed routine, so to condition a Shark can take many months or years.

In my opinion, as long as the area is not over crowded and there are limits on the number of boats, plus laws that the operators have to abide by, than I do not personally see that this is harming the sharks. To interact with nature, we must first learn to respect it.

Comments: Hi Sharkman,
I saw your report on the trip now :-)
Some very impressing pictures.
Shit you have to go there when wheather and visibility could be that bad - two days you lost! All the time no guarantees - just hope. Nikki, her bad attitude and her scars fascinated me ;-) Nikki and The Bus played a game on you and took the 'cookie' HA!! I do not need any photos of sharks that get kissed or so... Pls. do everything to let such approaches die. If business, it should keep high quality - and this you get only with respect towards these creatures! These creatures are more than 'jaws'. And I am happy for the friends you have :-)

Sharkman Comments: Hi Anna, Thanks for your note. Yes....there is more to Sharks then just "Jaws", and I hope that my photos can change a little of that image.

Anna, thank you for creating such a lovely photo for my 2002 page. I hope that you return to Malta soon.

Comments: Sharkman, it has been my life long dream to be introduced to a man of such great magnitude, that day has finally come. I find my knees shaking as I indulge into your passionate site devoted to the beautiful creature known as a shark. Back in 'Nam the guys always told me I would never amount to much, I was too shark oriented, well I say what now! With you as my guiding light I have devoted my life to being the sharkboy, for I know I can never reach the status of man. My first step us to move to Malta and study under your excellency. I might not be there for quite some time, my moment will come however, when the wind cries "sharkboy", or when my social security checks start kicking in so I got some cheese

Sharkman Comments: This is one heck of an "Original" comment. :-) The only thing I can add to it is..... "Arise Sir Sharkboy."

Comments: Keep up the good work. People need to be made aware of how rare and precious these animals are, and how important they are to the survival of this planet, and until you've actually dove with them (as I have ) you cannot appreciate their true beauty and intelligence, as I 'm sure you will agree. Thanks Sharkman, from a fellow diver and a shark chick for true.

Sharkman Comments: Thanks Roni. Yes.... seeing Sharks in their natural environment is the only way were one can truly witness their true beauty.

Comments: I like your site Sharkman... I am a fisherman from Maine who runs a charter fishing business during the summer months. I recently purchased another vessel that I plan on taking some of my valued guests fishing on. I do not plan on keeping all of the sharks I catch. Maine has this new program where you can tag the sharks you catch and I am sure that this will allow my anglers to release the shark without feeling as though they have to kill them. I just thought I would let you know about some measures that have been taken in my neck of the woods.
Take it easy Sharkman.
-Cpt. Whit McMahon

Sharkman Comments: Ahoy Capt. Thanks for your note. Good to hear that you want to start the "Tag and Release" programe. How about RELEASING ALL THE SHARKS that you catch? That would be much better, because you will be Helping to educate your guests about Shark protection and conservation. I truely hope that you consider this option.

Well I was wondering if anyone could please help me and tell me how many great white's are left in our waters...sharkman, if it is not too much trouble could you please send me the answer (if you know) by e-mail??? thank you very much! chloe ^_^

Sharkman Comments: Hi Cleo. no one can say how many Great Whites are in our oceans.It is impossible to tag every single shark. In some areas, the number of sightings have decreased, whilst in others, they increased. These sharks do not stay in one area, and they are believed to move around quite a bit. Many have been tagged and then resighted hundreds of kilometers away.

I too, like the rest of their world, am shocked and sad about the events that have happened recently in the USA It is unbelievable to see what a few merciless lunatics can do. But do not loose hope. I am sure that things will get better, and you will grow up and have a chance to see some real Sharks.

Sadly, I live in a country that is very far away from the USA, so I cannot visit you. But I will send you my picture. Acacia, my young friend, please remember that I am only a normal person, and not some Superhero!!

I myself have found myself strangely obsessed with sharks particularly the Great White sine I was a small boy, now as an adult I am training as a scuba diver with the solitary goal of getting in the water with these magnificent creatures and observing them as nature intended, in the wild and free. Hopefully one day I may meet you on a shark dive, until then, keep up the excellent work

Sharkman Comments: Hi, Daniel & Sherry. It is true that sadly there have been a few incidents around the Florida coastline. What amazes me is that with all the warnings and reports, people are still going into the water when they should not. Both fatal incidents from last week happened at Dusk, when shark activity is higher.

Comments: I am fascinated by sharks and your web page is excellent. Unfortunately although a good swimmer I am terrified of the sea (which probably aids my fascination). I have been to Gozo on holiday a few times but due to my fear I didn't spend any time diving which makes me very sad! Hopefully I will be able to overcome my fear and experience the sea for myself! Keep up the great work Mr Sharkman x

Sharkman Comments: Hi Marie, If you are here again, I would love to take you on your first dive. I am sure that together we can beat your fear.

Comments: Many people say they would love to dive with sharks but is that possible without getting gobbled up straight away?

Sharkman Comments: Hi Michelle, Millions of people enter the oceans everyday where Sharks are and none of these are eaten. O.K. there can be a rear incident, once in a while, but this is not because sharks are hunting humans. We make bad menu dish for sharks and people are not "Gobbled Up" by Sharks, just "tasted". most of the bites on Victims are single bites, were the sharks check out if we are food or not. Depending on the size of the shark, will be the size of the bite. Most of the time when the accident is fatal, it is only because no prompt and proper first aid is available.

I read about you cage diving experience and thought that was really neat. I will also be doing a cage dive, but I will have to become certified before doing so. Unlike you, I will be staying in the United States and doing this dive in California. I hope to have my certification by next year. Once again, I think that your web page is great and that what you are doing is wonderful.

Comments: Hello Alex, I hope you are well. I come into the South of France just from a vacation with Steffi. unfortunately, I must say, roughly the plunge isn't as beautiful as at Malta there. Unfortunately, there many diving places were strewed by smearing algas. I have 2 questions to you once. It is possible with you ( or Udo,Mathias, Pixi) in November for me making a CMAS 2 Star course and for Steffi a Padi AOWD course, in a time of 2 weeks? and the second question is. I would like to have a tatoo made to me, I have decided in favor of a fish. The german name is Drachenkopf (Hang-glider head). You probably just laugh about the translation.perhaps you could send me a picture of a Drachenkopf, this one himself as tattoo presentation? Perhaps you have a good photo of this? I hope with you everything is very well. Please, also greet my others once. Steffi and I are pleased to dive again with you. Till there, says hello kind, Björn.

Comments: Hi, Recently I was informed the last two victims fatally attacked by sharks in Australia had a surname Ford. I was wondering if you could verify this as fact and provide me with info pertaining these incidents, or direct me to where I would find out details (dates, names, locations). If this is true, I would gain much pleasure in passing on the facts to my statistics lecturer, as I imagine he would have a field day calulating the proability of this occurrence, if fact. Regards Charlie Lester

Sharkman Comments: Hi Charlie. The last fatal incidents to happen in Australia, happened last year on 24 September 2000 to Cameron Bayes {25} in CACTUS BEACH, CEDUNA, S. AUSTRALIA. A Great White Shark, 4/5m, circled the board, rolling over before dragging surfer under. Victim resurfaced and mounted board & tried to paddle to shore; shark hit again taking him under again.

25 September 2000 Jevan Wright {17} was surfing at Black Point, Elliston, S. Australia. A Great White attacked the Surfer and dragged him off his board. Body never recovered. Only his bitten board found.

06 November 2000, Ken Crew {49} was also fatally attacked whilst swimming at COTTESLOE BEACH, PERTH, W. AUSTRALIA.

I have also found 2 records of People named "Ford", who were fatally attacked but this happened some years ago.

09 June 1993, JOHN FORD, {31} was fatally attacked at JULIAN ROCKS, BYRON BAY, NSW, AUSTRALIA.

07 March 1982 MARTY FORD was also fatally attacked at TALLOW BEACH, BYRON BAY, NSW, AUSTRALIA.

I hope this helps.

It's just too bad that there aren't more people out there trying to do the same thing. These beautiful creatures may one day cease to exist and most people won't even bat an eye to it. Just like you, I too will do everything in my powers to make sure that that doesn't happen. Keep up the good work.

Sharkman Comments: Thanks Octavia. Shark protection and education is an important issue that we must all push forward. Our fight to save the sharks must go on and it is a hard path to follow but we must never give up. Thank you for your support.

You know me as "Shark Madonna" (from Shark-L), or the Shark's Mother of Christ because I love them, understand them and protect them. It has been my utmost pleasure to see your site.
Until later, the Shark Madonna :-D

Sharkman Comments: Hi Shark Madonna. Glad to see that you made it to my pages. We sure have many things in common.... :-)

Comments: Wonderful site! I needed to know "Ampullae of Lorenzini" and I found it through a link on your site. I am a longtime lover of sharks (since I saw Jaws as a little girl!) and I wanted to study Great Whites when I grew up, but alas, I was unable to fulfill my dream due to college expenses. It was awesome looking at your GW photos. Maybe one day I can do that too! Keep hope alive Sharkman! I'm bookmarking your site. I wrote a short story about a GW (fantasy) and that's why I needed to find that term. Got it on NOVA's website. Thanks so much for the link!

Sharkman Comments: Hi Jenny, thanks for the comments. I hope that one day you get your chance to see the true beauty of the Great White Sharks alive and swimming free. Can I have a copy of your story please?

Comments: Hi there, I am considered by my cousins to be a bit of a Shark Man myself!!! (They reckon I like anything with teeth, as my other passion is Tigers). But seriously, I got a book on Sharks when I was 11 (and from then on I was "bitten" by the Shark bug), which had good coverage of Rodney Fox, needless to say I too was fascinated by the story and the man himself. We've had 3 sharks lately off Takapuna beach (Auckland, NZ) in the last month ... I scooted down that way hoping to see a fin or two, a few guys actually caught a baby white only the week after I'd gone down. They don't often come in so far, but the weather was right for it this time. I've always been of the firm belief that Sharks have always been doing their bit to help the good Earth, and ought to be protected far more than feared. I've often told people who think that Sharks are "just maneaters, good for nothing else" that they'd probably feel a tad annoyed if someone came into their house and started dumping needless waste all over their floor every day - which I'm almost sure accounts for some of the time that sharks decide to have a go at people, unfortunately that's basically what people do to the Shark's own home environment, mess it up. I've been looking up research for my own Shark Site .. soon to be up, I'll let you know! Great work, I'm diving in for some more!

Sharkman Comments: Hi Alan, Glad to meet another SHARKMAN :-). It is sad to read about the captured shark. Let me know when your pages are up and keep on fighting to protect our finny friends. You should start working for Shark Protection over there. You will get a lot of support.

We found a lot of information that we couldn't find on other sites. We ended up getting an A+. We recommend your site to anyone who is interested in sharks. We also told them about the cool tattoos you have. Thank you Sharkman for making such a marvelous Website. Keep up the good work. Kirk

I thank you for sharing with all of us such a detailed account of your adventure. It helps those of us that had to stay behind. I hope this is only the first of many such adventures for you. My sincere best wishes to you and your family.

Sharkman Comments: Hello Ralph. It is an honour to have you here on my site. Thank you for your comments and I hope that your upcoming trip will also be a success.

Comments: I am really interested in diving with great whites, so much so that I am taking a few months to go and see them. Because it's been a big fear of mine I have to conquer it (I'm only 5ft 2inches) so I want to go to the best place possible that has a higher chance of seeing a great white. Can you recommend a place to go with a good chance of being in a cage with one in the water. BTW I love the site its really cool with some excellent pages and the cartoons are really funky!

Sharkman Comments: Hi Gerard. I recommend that you go to S.Africa or Australia to see the Whites. I will answer your mail soon. Thanks for your comments too.

Comments: Your report on the trip was like a thriller...waiting...hope...tension...luck...I could even imagine me being ON the boat. I was much impressed about Michael's hand and that the sharks allowed you to touch them. Did you wear gloves? What was the feeling? I once had a Phyton in my arms. They felt beautiful. (I hope the Phyton thought the same!) The more I look at the sharks' faces the more I can see them smiling :-). Not to make a much to silly comment: I respect them. Good work you are doing! This should be you job.

Sharkman Comments: Hi Anna. Thank you for your comments. It is great to see you here, and to know that now you view Sharks in a different way, Das ist Klasse. . I am happy that now you see them SMILE. I look forward to your return here and we can do more dives. Who knows...maybe you bring me more luck and a few Sharks.:-) I did wear gloves on the dives yes, but i also touched the sharks without gloves, from the boat when taking some of the pictures. The feeling is unexplainable. I want more.... :-)

Great pics, especially the close-ups and that head on shot hanging off the back of the boat! Incredible. I look forward to my trip to Australia to see the Whites off there, the days will not pass quickly enough until then. I get goose bumps thinking of the first moment I will see a white shark in the flesh. Your wish has been fullfilled and I give you the best in returning to see the whites! Are you ever thinking of visiting Australia? Thanks again for putting my pics of shark tattoos up on your site. When I get my White Shark tat done I will send you the pic right away to add to the collection! Will it be my last? Well I was thinking a shark jaw would make a great tattoo....Hmmmmmm. :-) Fantastic work Alex. Keep it up, you are THE SHARKMAN!!

Comments: hallo Alex , I think this Website is great! I am very curious about all kinds of sharks. I've read a lot of news that many sharks are killed for their fins and their bodies and are then thrown back to the water.. I am very curious how the conservation groups can prevent people from killing them.

Sharkman Comments: That is a very hard war that all of us fighting for Shark protection are trying to win. The process is slow but we have managed to win quite a few battles. Educating the public and those in Command is the first step.

I wanted to know if you were familiar with the food networks show that comes from Japan, it is called "the iron chef"? my friends and I were watching it one day when we were disgusted and shocked to find that their secret ingredient that show was shark fins. Since then my friend and I have vowed to never watch it again and have urged others to do the same. I wanted you to know what they call entertainment in Asia. I also wanted to ask if you have and info you could pass my way on preservation of sharks and what is being done today to save these beautiful creatures. Thanks so much, Kristin Rankin

Sharkman Comments: Hi Kristin, Thanks for the info. Sadly the Asian countries are the biggest problem when it comes to Shark Finning. There are a lot of links on my Links page that you can follow to find out more information.

Comments: Hi Alex! Wow! Awesome Website! I think you are doing an awesome job working with sharks to protect and conserve them. I would love to do what you do for a living, you are a great role model. I am a beach lifeguard and rescue scuba diver and have dove with sharks once, in the Bahamas. I hope to take something related to sharks in school (Any suggestions? There isn't much interest in sharks here.) and work with them in the future. What is Shark L-List? Also I have two cool shark tattoos, if you'd like I can send pics to you for your Tattoos Page. I'd like to hear from you! Keep up the excellent work, I'd like to visit Malta one day. Regards, Todd Claxton.

Sharkman Comments: Hi Todd. Thanks for your comments and also for your emails. Just for the Record.... I DO NOT WORK WITH SHARKS.... I wish I did. I do all I can for their protection and I try to learn as much as possible about them. SHARK-L list is a Shark Forum on the net... You can sign into it and start participating in all kinds of Shark related topics. Go to my News Page for more info. I would be very happy to add your Tattoos to my page.

Comments: Hi! First I must give you my warmest thanks for all the good things you are doing for our friends. I'd like to thank you for making it possible for people like me to maybe one day be able to see Great Whites in the med. I'm a student and a soon to be shark scientist. (at least that's the plan) and hadn't it been for such extraordinary people as yourself there might not have been any GW left by the time I'm a full-feathered scientist in the field. I also have to congratulate you to an excellent Website., extremely fun and great pics and text. :o) You are indeed a true source of inspiration! Good luck in the future. Yours truly Henrik.

Sharkman Comments: Thanks Henrik. I wish you all the best for your Studies.

Only one question: Has anyone ever tagged a great white in the Mediterranean? Two thumbs up for this great web site!
Sharkman Comments: Hi Andreas... thanks for your comments. As far as I know, No Whites have yet been tagged in the Med. yet.

So please tell me what sharks I may encounter. Keep up the good work.
