Here in Florida, the shark population is totally diverse. Shark species range in sizes from few feet to more than 40 feet in total length according to a study. All sea-goers are being warned about this fact. Sea-goers should beware of sharks 6 feet or longer because the damage they can cause in a single bite is really dangerous.
Among the species that grow big and have been known to attack humans are bull sharks, tiger sharks and great white sharks. Unfortunately, that is the reason that I am chicken to go swimming on the beach. According to the experts, these type of sharks are not predominant so; beach-goers or sea-goers are unlikely to come across these sharks in Florida waters.
Anyway, I am not an expert with sharks so; I do not know what species these were. I forgot to ask the man in-charge. I heard him say that these sharks will never grow more than what they are. Meaning, these are not baby sharks and these are fully grown sharks in their species. Most of the passengers/guests were requesting them to fillet the sharks. Yes, these can be eaten.
