Ian O'Doherty: Anyone remember the pathetic sharks?

I absolutely adore sharks. I'm an animal lover anyway but there's something utterly fascinating and mysterious about these amazing creatures.

My folks brought me to see Jaws when I was five, which would probably constitute a case of child abuse these days but was seen as perfectly normal back then.

And ever since that seminal moment in my life, I've been rather tragically obsessed with them. Although occasionally in a stupid way, such as the time I swam towards a shark that had entered a lagoon while everyone else was scarpering out of the water.
