Bull shark a good suspect for a taste test, unless just an oops, sorry, not food, didn't know you were human. Now have nasty taste in mouth .... 5555
Though good luck with seeing anything in that sewer. Was at Ao Manao the other day, waist high and couldn't see my feet clearly. A bit stirred up, as actually one of a few clean beaches, since at military base.
According to the little bit of research I have done, Black Tip sharks typically don't grow bigger than 1.5 meters, they rarely venture into deep water, preferring shallow brackish water, and they are typically non-aggressive towards humans. They are also hunted for their meat, their skin, and for their liver oil. They are also a popular target among anglers because they are known to put up a good fight once hooked.
Hopefully all this media attention won't lead to the demise of these local sharks.
