Quotes from the news wire:
A shark has got no paws or hands, so if it wants to explore something, the only capability it's got to do that is to put it in its mouth, that's why we often get exploratory bites which don't result in death and sometimes don't even result in serious injury. If you go swimming and splashing away, you're almost inviting the shark to come give you an exploratory or an attack bite.
If fisherman are catching fish or struggling with fish in the water, that's one of the prime attractors for a shark, so when you've hooked a fish before you've landed it on the boat, the whole time it's struggling in the water it's likely to be emitting fluids, leaking blood and acids ... all the signals that would attract a shark.
If you're a diver with an underwater camera, use it, if you're a snorkeler, rip off your snorkel and use it to poke the shark, i've had a lot of sharks come at me, and it's (been) enough to use a shark billy -- a small metal rod between two and three feet long -- and I've just given them a little nudge on their nose.
