Marcus Groh died from a shark attack on a trip led by Jim Abernethy's Scuba Adventures

SAN DIEGO, California -- The April, 2008, episode of Shark Conspiracies is now available for free download. Shark Conspiracies explores shark sightings and attacks in a new way, by exposing the cover-ups and misinformation sometimes generated from tourism and conservation interests. Shark Conspiracies claims to be both “pro shark” and “pro truth.”

The April episode discusses the case of Austrian diver Markus Groh, who was attacked and killed by a large shark in Bahamian waters on February 24, 2008. Groh was bitten while diving among chummed in tiger and bull sharks, without a cage, off of charter captain Jim Abernethy’s boat, Shear Water.

If the shark attack wasn’t tragic enough, the “smooth over” job following the incident by the tourism and conservation interests, including the Miami-Dade Medical Examiner, was enough to make for a great April podcast. The show runs 17 minutes.
