The Shark Free Marinas Initiative Director, Luke Tipple, was recently interviewed by CBS 4 Miami concerning Mark The Shark and his catch of a 1200 pound female Tiger Shark.
Sea Isle Marina has a history of adopting green initiatives. They were one of the first in the region to adopt the Florida based Clean Marina program and it is hoped they might see the wisdom and positive media in being the very first large marina in the region to adopt the Shark Free Marinas Initiative.
The initiative would stop large, breeding aged animals, like the recent 12 foot, 1000lb shark brought back this week from entering the marina.
A win for the sharks as these animals typically end up in a local dumpster after film crews and locals have left.
Editors Note: Although SFMI has been working with the organizers and sponsor city of the 'Are you Man Enough Tournament' the Shark Free Marinas Initiative was not responsible for the protests surrounding the event. SFMI works with tournament organizers and business owners surrounding these events to push an agenda of shark conservation while ensuribng their business is effected in the least possible way.
