How to swim with sharks: It is not an acknowledged sport and it is neither enjoyable nor exhilarating.
These instructions are written primarily for the benefit of those, who, by virtue of their occupation, find they must swim and find that the water is infested with sharks.
It is of obvious importance to learn that the waters are shark infested before commencing to swim. It is safe to say that this initial determination has already been made.
Finally, swimming with sharks is like any other skill: It cannot be learned from books alone; the novice must practice in order to develop the skill. The following rules simply set forth the fundamental principles which, if followed will make it possible to survive while becoming expert through practice.
Rules Assume all unidentified fish are sharks. Not all sharks look like sharks, and some fish that are not sharks sometimes act like sharks. Unless you have witnessed docile behavior in the presence of shed blood on more than one occasion, it is best to assume an unknown species is a shark.
Inexperienced swimmers have been badly mangled by assuming that docile behavior in the absence of blood indicates that the fish is not a shark. It is a cardinal principle that if you are injured, either by accident or by intent, you must not bleed. Experience shows that bleeding prompts an even more aggressive attack and will often provoke the participation of sharks that are uninvolved or, as noted above, are usually docile.
Admittedly, it is difficult not to bleed when injured. Indeed, at first this may seem impossible.
Diligent practice, however, will permit the experienced swimmer to sustain a serious laceration without bleeding and without even exhibiting any loss of composure. This hemostatic reflect can, in part, be conditioned, but there may be constitutional aspects as well.
Those who cannot learn to control their bleeding should not attempt to swim with sharks, for the peril is too great. The control of bleeding has a positive protective element for the swimmer.
On the other hand, the shark may know he has injured you and be puzzled as to why you do not bleed or show distress. This also has a profound effect on sharks. They begin to question their own potency or, alternatively, believe the swimmer to have supernatural powers. Counter any aggression promptly.
Sharks rarely attack a swimmer without warning. Usually there is some tentative, exploratory aggressive action. It is important that the swimmer recognize that this behavior is a prelude to an attack and takes prompt and vigorous remedial action.
The appropriate countermove is a sharp blow to the nose. Some swimmers mistakenly believe that an ingratiating attitude will dispel an attack under these circumstances.
This is not correct; such a response provokes a shark attack.News Corp is a network of leading companies in the worlds of diversified media, news, education, and information services. Thousands of leopard sharks and other marine life including rays and striped bass have been dying in the San Francisco Bay, and it may be due to a parasite that enters via the nose and eats the brain.

Adequate anchoring, lots of wide open anchoring at Big Major Spot for winds from any easterly component plus anchoring between the Majors for winds from any direction, make it OK for a cold front too.
- SHARKS There are more that species of sharks, ranging from the harmless whale shark to the ferocious great white. I will describe the feeding habits and localities of the three greatly known to mankind: the great white shark (Carcharodon Carcharias), the tiger shark (Galeocerdo Cuvieri), and the bull shark (Carcharhinus Leucas).
