How to avoid a shark attack?

Sharks can be very common at this time of year, Daniel Abel, a professor of marine science at Coastal Carolina University, told WRAL.

The only way to really avoid being attacked by a shark is to stay out of open water, but there are preventative measures you can take if you take a dip in the ocean.

Abel said not to “swim at dawn and dusk. There aren’t many people in the water and some sharks are closer to the shoreline and feeding.”

“Don’t swim where there are schools of small fish. They are called offshore bait fish. The sharks will swim in or in them,” Abel advised.

It’s also best not to swim “near where people fish, such as in piers,” he said.

While beachgoers have seen quite a few shark attacks this summer, Abel warns against treating sharks just like our predators.

“It’s very important that we treat our sharks, our ocean and our entire planet with more respect than we do now,” he said.
