Its going to be a bummer when the sharksc start to associate food with divers.
John, that is not at all likely with these wild animals. If the sharks in the Bahamas were not deemed to be more valuable alive as a shark feeding tourist attraction they would probably be extinct in that area completely wiped out by sport fishing. I dove Shark junction with and without feedings and the sharks know who has the food and when it's time to eat. They aren't given enough food to sustain themselves and must hunt to survive. IMO the feedings raise awareness for a species that is being decimated world wide.
