is reported in the March 25th issue of Mexico Daily News suggesting it was due to the cool ocean currents we are experiencing.

YES, this can happen here every year at this time of year. Cold water holds the nasty sharks. Swim at your own risk until water temperature reversal.


That's not a fair statement, David. Thousands of people swim at our beaches daily without incident. The greatest threat to swimmers is usually themselves for not paying attention to the waves or for drinking and going in the water. A tourist recently drowned swimming at Playa Linda. In the past 30 years I believe there have been less than 5 shark attacks along our coast. The bull sharks appear attracted to the mouths of rivers and lagoons where they find an abundance of prey and more than a little garbage discarded by humans. Never heard of them being in Zihuatanejo Bay. Our fishermen usually notice such things. I'm surprised that in all the articles on this alleged shark attack that no one has thought to ask any experts. Divers and fishermen and local marine biologists. Even though I believe tooth marks may be visible in the photo of the wound, it has not been confirmed as a shark attack by any expert that I'm aware of.
