I gave it a shot, and I could see my lizard going past the bed as the bass kept a steady eye on it. It gave me those three little nibbles they always give when biting down on a lure. When I felt those nibbles, I quickly jerked my rod and set the hook on my first bass of the day. It's a sensation like no other to reel a fish in and have that feeling of excitement, but at the time I was still a little scared of slimy fish. However, there was no dad or friend to help me get the fish off the line, just me and my bare hands as I grabbed the bass’ lip and took out the hook for the first time on my own.

Rory McAuley, a shark expert with the Department of Fisheries, “asserts that the film Jaws is a seminal point for most media responses and the histrionic reporting reinforces popular images of great whites as man-eating predators” (Francis, 44) McAuley also states that “shark attacks do not need this form of hype because people are interested in[shark attacks] anyway.” (Francis, 44) Before the turn of the twentieth century, anything known about sharks was mostly based on “myths and sea lore.” (Francis, 45) Previous to more recent times, people believed sea monsters and serpents were skulking in the unknown depths of the ocean. When swimming became a popular recreational activity, the average swimmer knew or cared very little about sharks. During the 1900s, people in the United States did not believe that sharks attacked people, it was thought that they were harmless. However, in 1916, the people of America were astounded by a twelve day series of shark attacks in New Jersey that killed four people. The New York Times, and other popular newspapers headlined this event.
To illustrate, Dawn Brancheau was a trainer at SeaWorld and on February 24, 2010 she was dragged down into the water and mauled by Tilikum, a 12,000 pound killer whale who had a history of being aggressive (Cowperthwaite) . Tilikum was captured just at 2 years old. Many killer whales in the wild are not aggressive or hyperactive, so while being in captivity Tilikum adopted these traits thus causing the death of Dawn and many others. Similarly, throughout the years there have been numerous accounts of killer whale trainers being injured or killed (Halverstadt). The killer whales in captivity are very hostile, when the trainers get in the water it's a perfect opportunity for the whales to grab them and drag them down.
Lars Gustafson 11/4/15 GEOG 304 Research Paper: Shark Finning With an alarming one in four shark species endangered across the globe, we have come to a breaking point where our oceans ecosystems could suffer permanent damage if the practice of shark finning in the oceans off of Eastern Asia continues as shark population’s plummet. According to www.stopsharkfinning.net, tens of millions of sharks are killed every single year just for the fins that are the main ingredient in shark fin soup.

All is quiet in the beautiful ocean then you hear a scream then you look out into the ocean and the only thing you could see was a shark tail. Older Than Dinosaurs? Sharks have lived on the earth longer than you think for example, over three hundred years ago sharks roamed in waters, that is one hundred million years before dinosaurs roamed the earth! Some of the sharks that roamed long ago don’t roam today, on the other hand a handful of the sharks that lived then still live today. Who knows there may be more sharks in the deep of the ocean that we don’t know exist, most of the ocean has not been searched.

Before she knew it a shark came out the water and bit her arm clean off. Bethany didn’t panic, she didn’t even scream. She called out as calm as she could and said ‘’I just got attacked by a shark!’’ Alana’s dad had gotten to her first and pushed her up to the shore.
Odysseus then went to the beach and began to swim out into the ocean. After an hour or two of swimming in the ocean Odysseus decided to cut himself to lure a shark.
