Islander Sights Shark? off Tennis Wharf

On Friday morning whilst waiting for the 9 o'clock ferry I was watching the activity in the water off Tennis Wharf.  There were so many bait fish swirling around that the water was black.  After several minutes larger fish starte to appear, possibly King fish or Tailor.  Suddenly a very large dark brown fish, between 1 & 2 metres appeared, and chased the larger fish.  From my scuba diving experience and from similar sightings I understood this very large fish to be a possible Bronze Whaler Shark.  Somebody at the Tennis Commuter Wharf then started their outboard motor and moved over towards the steps.  The bait fish and all other fish activity then ceased.  I would urge all parents to educate their children of this event.
