Sharks are known to have sensitive noses to pick up the scent of blood, even if an individual is not bruised and goes directly towards its’ prey.

At this time of the year, the presence of sharks in the tropics is an annual phenomenon during the winter months, from other territories.

The advisory concluded with an appeal to Parents and guardians to keep a close watch on their  child/children, when travelling to the beaches.

  1. I will be going to Nevis for two months, February and March. Are there many sharks at that time of the year? If so, what kind? I have been on Paradise Beach many times.
