    Absolute waste of a fascinating creature in a sea where they are low on numbers 
    . Only positive to take from this is that they are evidently still there in the med . 
    Seems as tho the gws is making a small comeback as there have been a lot of sightings in the last few years , but then again who really knows how many gws are in the med as it’s a very large sea and they don’t exactly pop there heads out of the water to say hi .
    More worrying for me is the fact that the eastern Atlantic popolulation is no where to be seen and that I’ve never seen a report of a gws of the coast of portaguel, so if gws are visiting the U.K. than I can’t see where they would travel from , hence no great whites in U.K. waters
