Human interactions

Bull sharks are one of the more threatening sharks to humans. Since they dwell in warm, tropical waters, and sometimes even fresh water, they come closer to beach goers than most other sharks. However, humans pose just as large, if not a bigger threat to these sharks. They are frequently fished and tangled in nets since they swim so close to the shore. Their skin is often used as leather, and in many areas of the world, they are eaten.

Here are some examples of bull shark and human interactions, as well as a setting in which an interaction might occur.
