Marine police on Saturday (7th May 2016) searching for a shark in Silvermine Bay after a beach-goer reported that he might have seen a shark outside the shark net. The life guards raised the red flag and a police launch and government flying service helicopter were dispatched. But witnesses interviewed by Apple Daily also suggested it may have swum more like a dolphin than a shark. Apple Daily posted a video on their site here. You can see the “shark” at the 1:00 minute mark. It’s definitely a dolphin.

I am a ex marine biologist now working for a garment company but am still passionate about marine biology and oceanography. I studied Marine Science and completed a PhD in Antarctic deep-sea ecology and biodiversity including two expeditions to the Antarctic and one to the Artic. I fell in love with HK's rich marine environment when I was a child and I have seen it change seomtimes for the better, but also for the worse since my childhood. This blog is my collection of interesting facts, news and articles that celebrate and educate on HK's diverse marine environment. View all posts by hkmarinelife
