“So this just happened. We were on our Yamaha FX Cruiser jet ski touring up the western side of Fraser Island, we noticed a shadow in the water and realised in was a rather large shark. We decided to get a little closer to take some video footage and we clearly got a little too close! No one was injured although the jet ski did get some scuff marks where the shark contacted the ski. I literally had to move my leg so it didn’t get mauled!” – Libby Williams.

Surf lifesavers from Scarborough used a small boat to herd the shark into deeper water. It comes as beaches across Sydney’s south were recently closed after a surfer was nudged off his board by a shark. The man was surfing at Cronulla at about 11.15am on Easter Monday when he encountered the shark. Police don’t usually become involved in shark-patrol duties, and the West Australian had fun with its story, leading with this paragraph: “Even the most intimidating predators can’t escape the long arm of the law.”

A fleet of fishing vessels is actively fishing on the high seas of the Indian Ocean using drift nets, a form of fishing banned by the United Nations in 1992 due to its indiscriminate and destructive impact. The Steve Irwin first intercepted the fleet of vessels engaged in illegal fishing in January 2016. Now, Sea Shepherd has released shocking photographs and video of the encounter, showing sharks, dolphins, seals, and multiple species of fish, including critically endangered Southern Bluefin tuna, entangled and dead in the illegal nets.

The shark, about 3.5 metres (11’5”) in length, was trapped in a fisherman’s net and taken to an aquarium on the southern Japanese island of Okinawa. Great whites are aggressive creatures, which makes them difficult to capture and handle. Their need to hunt and swim freely for long distances means that in captivity, they can refuse food and get depressed and disoriented.

A fisherman thought he hooked the catch of a lifetime, but then a shark got involved. “What do we got?” the guide from Captain Bucko’s Fishing Charters can be heard asking in the video. “Lift him up!” Then, a shark jumped up and stole what was left of the fish. The incident happened in the Bay of Islands in New Zealand. The shark was identified as a small great white, a rare sighting in this area.

The great grandfather said the shark was too heavy for him to lift into his boat. “If I could have put it onto the boat or anywhere else, I would have done it,” he said. The man said the shark was already dead when he caught it and he hauled it in to avoid other sharks going after the carcass. “If I put the shark back into the water, other sharks would come around and start a feeding frenzy and if people were nearby they could probably end up getting hurt or killed,” he said. The man’s comments come after Department of Fisheries told media the fisherman could be hit with fines of more than $5000 if the shark proved to be protected.

“But when we were heading back to the boat, about a half hour after we’d got on that shark and it was really mellow, it turned on me. I was on the surface and it swam right at me. And since I didn’t have anything in my hands, I basically had to give this 12-foot tiger shark the Heisman. And that just shows how quickly things can change.” – Mark Healey

28-year-old surfer Allen Engelman was out at Florida’s Ocean Reef Park when a seven-foot spinner shark grabbed hold of his hand by the mouth and refused to let go. Blood, pain, and rigorous shaking ensued, followed by the eventual release of Engelman’s hand, a trip to the local hospital, and 15 stitches. Engelman, a commercial fisherman by trade, then returned to the same beach the following day for revenge hooking the shark he claims to be responsible.
