    Good show David, Christine Dell’Amore from the National Geographic News wrote this article few days ago that goes along with the first part of your talk

    Talking about sharks, I am visiting this reef in Abaco, Bahamas that have several lemon sharks, reef sharks, black tips and nurse sharks, all of them seemingly resident of the area and in just 20 feet of water. Not too much overfishing in the region.

    My best,
