"‘If anything I’ve noticed, among the business community of the town of Chatham, which is the epicenter of white shark activity, they’ve embraced these animals as a way to make money and draw people to the town,’ says Dr. Greg Skomal, a senior biologist with the Massachusetts Marine Fisheries department, leading expert on these apex predators, and essentially the New England great white guru. ‘Virtually every shop on Main Street is selling some kind of shark trinket or shirt, you name it. I think it’s been a positive response, one of people trying to embrace these animals.’"
And, oh yeah, the “government’s fault” thing is about laws protecting seals, which result in more food for the sharks (sharks eat seals), therefore a growing shark populations. Cute, huh?
