    (CNN)When it comes to shark attacks, Florida typically tops global charts. But recently, New York has been making headlines for a spate of dangerous encounters that have rattled New Yorkers and triggered beach closures.Before 2022, there were only 12 recorded unprovoked bites in New York's history, including four from the past decade, according to the International Shark Attack File at the Florida Museum of Natural History. But this month, there were five non-fatal shark attacks in Long Island within just two weeks. While the area is seeing an increase in bites, it does not yet constitute a trend, according to researchers from the International Shark Attack File.The odds of getting fatally attacked by a shark remain less than 1 in 4 million, according to the International Shark Attack File.Still, experts say that a combination of conservation efforts and climate change may have something to do with the increase in attacks in New York.

    NASA has warned that a submarine volcano in the Solomon Islands – dubbed the 'sharkcano' because two species of shark are known to live in the submerged crater – is starting to erupt. Satellite images show a plume of discoloured water being emitted from the Kavachi Volcano, which lies about 15 miles south of Vangunu Island, on May 14. The volcano entered an eruptive phase in October 2021, according to the Smithsonian Global Volcanism Program, and the new satellite data suggests activity on several days in April and May 2022. Previous research has shown these plumes of superheated, acidic water usually contain particulate matter, volcanic rock fragments, and sulphur, according to NASA. However, this should not be a problem for the resident sharks, which have adapted to thrive in the hot, acidic conditions.

    Great white shark researchers are hoping to solve the most elusive piece of the Western North Atlantic white shark puzzle: when and where they mate. Shark scientists with OCEARCH have a pretty good hunch that the white shark mating site is off of the Carolinas, and they’re looking to confirm that in the coming month while researching there. From OCEARCH’s shark tracking data, it’s clear that the waters off the Southeast are a site for white sharks during the winter. The researchers have tracked both male and female mature sharks coming together off the Carolinas during the winter before the females head offshore to possibly gestate. “The OCEARCH team is excited to return to the Carolinas, as we approach the end of our journey to complete our understanding of the white shark in the Western North Atlantic, from birth to old age,” OCEARCH Chief Scientist Bob Hueter said. “A last critical piece of the puzzle — when and where these sharks are mating — is within our grasp,” he added. “All of our science points to the area off the...
    Though shark season is past its peak, a great white shark was recently spotted off the coast of Massachusetts attacking a seal, the Atlantic White Shark Conservancy said recently. The nonprofit organization tweeted an attack that happened near the southern tip of Monomoy Island, an eight-mile stretch of sand that goes southwest from Chatham, Massachusetts. The attack occurred on November 7 and footage was shot by a male identified as R. Nossa. The 32-second clip shows the shark going after the seal, with the shark's dorsal fin briefly breaching the surface of the water.

    MONTREAL — Sharks forward Evander Kane was given a 21-game suspension by the NHL on Monday for submitting a fake COVID-19 vaccination card. But it is hardly the first suspension he’s had since he joined the Sharks in Feb. 2018. In April 2018, he was suspended one game for cross-checking Pierre-Edouard Bellemare of the Vegas Golden Knights during the two team’s playoff series that year. Before the start of the 2019-2020 season, Kane was suspended for violating Rule 40.4 (Physical Abuse of Officials) during a preseason game against the Vegas Golden Knights. In Feb. 2020, he was suspended three games for elbowing Neal Pionk of the Winnipeg Jets. In Dec. 2014 as a member of the Jets, he was suspended two games for boarding Anaheim’s Clayton Stoner Although not a comprehensive list, here are some of the more notable suspensions in Sharks’ history. Oct. 5, 2016 Raffi Torres, 41 games: Torres was suspended for an illegal hit to the head on Anaheim’s Jakob Silfverberg, the longest ban for any Sharks player in the 25-year...
    SAN JOSE – The Sharks placed center Dylan Gambrell on waivers Saturday, two days before NHL teams have to submit 23-man rosters to the NHL. NHL teams have until 11 a.m. (PT) on Sunday to claim Gambrell, who played 99 games for the Sharks over the last two seasons. If he is unclaimed, the Sharks can assign him to the Barracuda of the AHL. The move solidifies Jasper Weatherby’s chances of making the Sharks roster out of training camp as the team’s fourth-line center, as both he and Gambrell were vying for that spot throughout camp. Weatherby had two points in four preseason games and also spent some time on the power play. Gambrell had two points in two games. The Sharks claimed Jonah Gadjovich off of waivers on Thursday, further crowding a forward pool. Of the 29 players that were on the Sharks’ roster as of Saturday, 18 were forwards, including Gambrell. Prior to picking up Gadjovich, Sharks coach Bob Boughner has said the team was likely going to keep 14 forwards to start the...
    THERE have been reported sightings of the giant megalodon despite the creature having gone extinct millions of years ago. But when and where has the megalodon been spotted? Here is everything you need to know... 2The giant megalodon died out 2.6million years agoCredit: Alamy Are megalodon's extinct? Yes the megalodon is extict. They dominated the oceans for 13 millennia before they died out 2.6million years ago.  Megalodons grew up to 60ft (18 metres) long and weighed 100 tons, feasting on whales and great white sharks during the Pliocene era. Despite the species being extinct, although there has been a number of "sightings". Seamen in the 1900s have given accounts of spotting the prehistoric creatures while in more recent years conspiracy theorists have claimed that the gigantic sharks still roam the seas. Despite these accounts, the majority of experts are adamant that there’s no evidence that the giant predator still exists. Scientists believe the mighty megalodon - star of the Jason Statham film The Meg - might have been wiped out when Earth was hit by cosmic radiation 2.6m years ago. The killer...
    Great white sharks are being forced to move into cooler waters due to climate change - but the move is putting local endangered wildlife at risk, experts warm.  Researchers from Monterey Bay Aquarium tracking the movement of young Great White Sharks noticed dramatic changes in their movements from 2014 onwards. They found that following a marine heatwave in 2014, the sharks shifted from Santa Barbara, California to the more northernly Bodega Bay to seek cooler water. This northward shift is evidence the sharks are finding it harder to find waters at their preferred temperature range, says study lead author Dr Chris Lowe.  The move 373 miles up the coast of California may have helped the sharks, but it led to a rise in dead sea otters and other species common in the northernly waters.   They found that following a marine heatwave in 2014, the sharks shifted from Santa Barbara, California to the more northernly Bodega Bay to seek cooler water Great white sharks are being forced to move into cooler waters due to climate change - but the...
    The forecast for the NHL’s realigned West Division doesn’t appear to be too complicated. Three teams at the top fighting for first place, followed by five teams battling for the fourth and final playoff spot. With the northern border closed to non-essential travel, the NHL created four new divisions — one with all seven Canadian teams, and three others with eight American teams each. So instead of being in the same division as Calgary, Edmonton and Vancouver, the Sharks now have Colorado, Minnesota and St. Louis to contend with, along with usual rivals Anaheim, Arizona, Los Angeles, and Vegas. Teams will play each other eight times for a 56-game season that starts Wednesday and ends May 8. The top four teams in each division make the playoffs. In the first round, the first place finisher will play the fourth place team, and No. 2 will face No. 3. The winner of those two series will play each other for the right to advance to the semifinals. Here’s a look at the West Division, in predicted...
    Santa Clara County’s sports teams will be the first in the nation to navigate a second coronavirus shutdown, beginning Monday when a new county health order takes effect. Team practices and games from the high school level to the pros will be banned in the county for three weeks, and officials said there are no exceptions — not for the 49ers or any other team that gained county clearance to begin practicing again this summer or fall. “That means that for those teams, they will not be able to play games or have practices where they have direct contact,” County Counsel James Williams said at a Saturday press conference. The order will force teams in the midst of their seasons — like the county’s college football and basketball teams, as well as the 49ers, to act quickly. They will likely have to postpone or cancel games, or find an alternative location to practice and play outside the county, as some investigated or did prior to their seasons. Those approaching an expected season like the Sharks will...
    WELLFLEET, Mass. (AP) — Cape Cod’s beaches and towns may be quieter because of the coronavirus pandemic, but officials are reminding visitors ahead of the July Fourth holiday that the famous Massachusetts destination remains a popular getaway for other summertime travelers: great white sharks. Cape Cod National Seashore Chief Ranger Leslie Reynolds warned at a news conference that the powerful predators are coming close enough to shore to be a concern for swimmers. Officials in Orleans also have documented at least two shark attacks on seals in recent days, the Cape Cod Times reports. And Gregory Skomal, a prominent shark scientist with the state Division of Marine Fisheries, says he tagged three great whites circling a whale carcass earlier this month as his research team began its work for the season. The peninsula southeast of Boston saw two shark attacks on humans in 2018, one of them fatal. Officials have recommended swimmers remain in waist-deep water where possible and avoid areas where sharks have been previously spotted as they weigh a range of responses to protect beachgoers and preserve the region’s tourist...
