Just two days after a video showing a shark swimming off the Dalmatian coastline on the Makarska Riviera comes news that the same shark was spotted yesterday near the island of Korcula.
The shortfin mako shark, also known as the blue pointer or bonito shark, was spotted in the Korcula Channel yesterday morning and it was confirmed that it is the same shark that was spotted earlier in the week as it has exactly the same scar between the head and dorsal fin. Experts said that there is no need to panic as this particular species of shark isn’t aggressive.
Representatives of the Institute of Oceanography and Fisheries in Split commented for the newspaper Dalmacija Danas that “There are no documented attacks in the Mediterranean. Generally, there are few such attacks in the world. The vast majority of these attacks are provoked, for example, when a shark is caught on a hook.”
Prije dva dana objavili smo informaciju da je kraj Makarske snimljen morski pas mako (Isurus oxyrinchus), a ne neka druga vrsta. Jutros je opet snimljen u Korčulanskom kanalu. Radi se o istom morskom psu a to se može vidjeti po rezu koji se nalazi malo desno, između glave i dorzalne peraje. (usporedba u prvom komentaru).
Još jednom naglašavamo da nema razloga panici, radi se o nezreloj jedinki i vrsti koja nije agresivna.
