Knock-on effect of Piracy
One of the many unthinkable knock-on effects of Piracy
The recent shark attack in the Seychelles may represent one of the many unthinkable knock-on effects of Piracy. In the second of two fatal attacks in the Seychelles this month, British honeymooner Ian Redmond lost his life while snorkelling only 20 yards from the shore.
According to the UK broadsheet, The Guardian: “Local people are saying the sharks have been attracted by charter ships coming to the islands to avoid Somali pirates. Tourists go fishing and throw the fish overboard, providing an easy source of food for the sharks, it has been claimed.”
