Brother Islands closed due to shark incidents

Popular dive site in Egypt – Brothers Islands has been temporarily closed to divers. The reason is repeated incidents involving sharks. The ban is in force from 7 to 31 December 2018. Everything was announced by the Chamber of Diving and Watersports (CDWS).

It is suspected that the incidents on the Friars Islands are due to excessive human activity in the area. The ban, and the subsequent calm in the surrounding waters, should result in a return to normal behaviour by the underwater inhabitants.

There are many factors that can lead to abnormal behaviour in sharks. These include too many boats and divers, illegal fishing, and shark feeding time. By providing more calm, local authorities hope to restore the predators’ natural behaviour.

The sharks will be closely monitored in the coming period. The December rest period is also to be used to devise measures to prevent such incidents in the future.
