Just about 50 sharks were spotted last year, a significant drop from previous years.

“To further support the evidence of the absence of these large, apex predators in the absence of the power supply, or the bite marks on the whale’s carcass, the city has removed the False Bay this year,” the cape town municipality said in a statement on Wednesday.

“We don’t know how the lack of False Bay, the impact it would have on the ecosystem,” the church added. “We also know that the reason for their disappearance.”

In accordance with the cape town travel website, shark cage diving, it is “one of the most popular activities for visitors to cape town.”

In a study published in April found that white sharks have their “favourite hunting ground” as the orcas — also known as the killer whales to enter.

It is unclear as to why exactly the sharks are on the left. The researchers suspect that it could be because the sharks are prey for orcas, or it may be that they will be teased or bullied about food, and will eventually be forced out.
