Some random thoughts:

I grew up with the vision of Copley's 'Watson and the Shark' and that instilled fear in me. I have never been able to watch 'Jaws'!

For six years I lived in St. Petersburg Beach, FL and occasionally there were sharks in the Gulf. I normally swam only when I saw dolphins, but found out later that it was a myth that dolphins were a shark deterrent.

Both of Kelsey Grammar's half brothers were killed in a shark attack.

There were cautions concerning the wearing of jewelry (anything shiny) and women swimming at the 'wrong time of month'.
