Shark cage diving.
Talk around the town was that after the Killer Whales scared off the White Pointer sharks some time ago over on the West Coast of South Australia the operators were looking for fresh waters to chum and feed the big wild White Pointers to keep there $$$ flowing in the pockets with out any care for the safety of the general public in my view.

Madness to operate this type of business in a popular surfing area. The Fleurieu coast region.
Too many shark attacks lately and this type of "show" will bring on saftey issues with the local surf industry and will keep more tourists away that it will bring into the area.

Danger. Big sharks will KILL off a lot of interest in the fleurieu for us all .
Only a very small group of people will gain and most of us will lose out .
Safety for us all should come first.

A total ban of this MADNESS is needed world wide.
Only research by scientists should be done in the cages and some filming for the general public to view.
