Shark Attacks

Shark attacks in the United States are at the lowest level in five years, and the Boston Globe reports that some researchers in Florida have figured out why. It turns out people don’t go the beach as much when they are broke. Seems to make sense, if you consider the people who have to travel a considerable distance to get to the beach. I wonder, though, if this trend was also seen in other recent economic declines – it seems to me like there are a lot of variable going on in the oceans right now that could also be affecting the shark population.
