Tiger Sharks Killed at Aliwal Shoal
I woke up this morning and the first thing I read was an email from my father about the killing of various tiger sharks at Aliwal Shoal. We are hoping to get more details. The story seems to get darker as allegedly one of the local shark dive operators bought tiger shark meat from the fisherman to use as bait to lure other tiger sharks for his operation.
I am supposed to go with my old man this April to Aliwal Shoal - want to meet his friends (both the ones with fins and those without). Many of the tiger sharks have names, such as "Dartboard" (pictured above) - the Wolf hopes that she is not one of the victims...
UPDATE - Thomas Peschak just wrote more about it.
