I just heard that Dr Elke Bojanowski is on her way from Hurghada to Sharm and that CDWS are assembling a team of experts - http://www.cdws.trav...news.aspx?id=46
A team of experts and Eric Ritter.

People's livelihoods and potentially the tourist's safety is under fire now, not to mention the sharks in the area. Don't you think it'd be a good idea to forgo the Ritter roasting in this thread? Please feel free to start a new topic on Ritter if you wish.

Apparently a Bull shark was over heard saying he "loved Erich Ritter" however he "Couldn't eat a whole one"

Can somebody explain what's wrong with Erich Ritter and/or his participation?
Posted 08 December 2010 - 10:21 AM
Didn't know who Eric Ritter was until these posts on the forum, so I looked him up- thanks to the miracle of google.
I feel he is certainly living proof that no matter how much we try to predict or humanise mother nature's modus operandi- she will always find a way to surprise us...and sometimes with tragic consequences.
(Look what happened to that poor guy who died on a Jim Abernethy trip??
Or Timothy Treadwell- r.i.p.??)

I notice that CDWS press releases are now referring to 'three' shark experts rather than 'four' experts.
I buy my own photographic kit. Diving equipment manufacturers and diving services suppliers get even-handed treatment from me whether they choose to advertise in the publications I write for or not. All the equipment I get on loan is returned as soon as it is finished with. Did you know you can now get Diver Mag as an iPad/Android app?

I couldn't see the others being happy to sit alongside Eric. In his book on shark behaviour he opines that a shark will either swim up to you and pass you or it might bite you. He's obviously an expert. He told me that sharks don't attck him because he drops his heart-rate. Well, not that time, Eric!
