You know Iíll be honest with you Frank; it isnít the safest place to swim. However the majority of those sharks listed are pretty much harmless.

I've always maintained that you drop a couple of rungs on the food chain when you step off the beach into the water. Heck, mosquitoes eat you a little at a time.

Sharks don't mean to kill people. They think where food and eat what's in the water and your in the water sometimes. They don't go out and say I want to kill a boy today. Your in THEIR territory. Never say you want to shoot one of gods animals. Just make sure that when your in the water that your aware of anything that can happen. Also don't wear jewlerly and don't go in if your bleeding or make to much splashing or motion. And never go in alone. Just be safe.

Why would you say that you want to shoot sharks and just kill them? There sharks yes they kill and hurt people but what do they know?! They eat what is in the ocean!!! For you to say that you want to shoot all of the sharks is saying that you want to shoot all the people that have ever killed a pig, or cow because they where hungry? Have respect for sharks they are beautiful and amazing creatures and when you startle or scare them they WILL bite you and hurt/ or kill you. Just don't be to startled or move a lot and if you don't bother them they wont bother you. So shame on you for saying you want to shoot sharks! And yes you did just got burned by a 11 year old so Blahhhh!

Its a shame that the people in charge make so little of shark bites in Fl. Florida has more shark attacks then any place in the world,also more deaths.We all know thats it bad business to have all this news .But it seems that money means more to some then a life.I fish for shark everyday for 4mo.here in FL. and catch avg. 3sharks a day from 4ft to 6 ft plus. but hook many over 8or 10 ft long but they just break the line or poles.and fish only about 10 to 40 ft off shore on Tiger Tail beach.people should know whats there and make there own minds about going in or letting there children in.I go in every day and have never been bite,BUT YOU NEVER KNOW.Enjoy but be carful.
