Carl Meyer - thank you!

This is as good as it gets.
Another issue which has generated a lot of heat here in Hawaii and elsewhere is shark cage diving ecotourism. 
These activities have proven hugely controversial
We’ve done a fair bit of work on the one here on Oahu, including a meta analysis of logbook data and tracking long-term movements of sharks captured at the cage diving sites -
the takeaway message is that there’s absolutely no scientific evidence whatsoever that the existing operations off Oahu are a threat to public safety, which has been people’s major concern.
Full interview here.
It's a great read that touches on many sometimes controversial topics and is garnished with many useful links - much too exhaustive and also, much to good to be synthesized in an abbreviated synopsis.

Once again - required reading!
