Shark Sightings in Dartmouth Waters

The Town of Dartmouth has experienced a significant increase in the presence of harbor seals along the Buzzards Bay coastline. Where seals and other natural prey thrive, there is an increased likelihood of predatory sharks following and feeding. Several independent reports of shark fin sightings in Dartmouth waters have been received throughout the 2014 boating season. Boaters, bathers and swimmers are urged to exercise additional caution upon the waterways. All are encourage to avoid water activities in areas where sharks and shark prey, especially seals, are located.
