After putting on all of the equipment, I went in the cage and was lowered 12 feet into a 120,000 gallon tank for 20 minutes. Puntillo said the sharks are fed 5-7 pounds of food per week and enjoy herring, mackerel, blue fish and sometimes squid. They were found off the coast of Jones Beach 16 years ago and have grown quite large, about 12-feet in length. “We have four sand tiger sharks— two females named Bumps and Bertha and two males, Drummer and Treadfin—four nurse sharks, one of which was donated by actor Tracey Morgan when it outgrew his tank, and two Wobbegong sharks.” I felt quite safe with my dive instructor, who is certified in scuba diving and has her instructor’s certification. “I’ve been doing this program for three years and if anything goes wrong we have two backups,” said Vietheer. “The only thing that would spook the sharks is if they were touched. They don’t have any bones so they can bend in half faster than you can blink.” Divers are encouraged to take pictures, but must hold a safety

Mundus’ captaining what he called “Monster brush with Hollywood came about Fishing” tours. A vividly eccentric when he and author Peter Benchley, character prone to wearing a hoop who wrote the book that Jaws was based

on, went on shark hunting expeditions prior to the publishing of Benchley’s 1974 novel. While the writer denied that Quint was based on Mundus, Shaw admitted the portrayal was based on the real-life fisherman. Mundus died of complications from a heart attack on Sept. 10, 2008, the day he returned to Hawaii after spending the summer on the East End. Ironically, he spent the last few years of his life as a shark conservationist, advocating his fellow fisherman to catch and release sharks, going so far as to release the 2005 pro-shark conservation children’s book, White Shark Sam Meets the Monster Man.

DINING

You know what our secret sauce to teach toddlers is? We have a process we’ve been perfecting for 37 years. And our instructors are all accomplished swimmers who have a magic twinkle that helps a little child connect. When your child sees affection, encouragement, and faith in the eyes of their swim instructor, learning to swim is natural. From the moment a toddler splashes around in the water, through the years of swim friends, group lessons, and swim team until the day you can’t imagine when your child heads off to college as a competitive or fitness swimmer, step-by-step, we teach swimming.

This is the home pool. We grow swimmers in Long Island and we take care of our kids. Visit longislandswimschool.com or call 516-378-8467. Long Island Aquatic Club has programs in Garden City and Syosset for children ages 1-15 at all levels of swim skills.

Trinidad’s Bake and Shark and a humane faux shark fin soup (far right)

DINING from page 6A for the flavor of shark fin but prefer not to partake in the barbaric process, check out Happy Buddha (135-37 37th St.) and Bodai Vegetarian (59-08 Main St.). The veggie version of this infamous dish usually consists of carrots, celery and various other vegetables along with vegetarian shredded pork and squid. The key ingredient, the vegetarian shark fin, is made of a high-fiber collagen extracted from vegetables like green beans. For a more guilt-free taste of shark, try the Trinidad treat Bake and Shark. In this dish, fried shark is piled on a round fried bread (the bake) and then drizzled with habanero sauce, tamarind sauce, various chutneys and other seasonings and

toppings. Again, head to Queens for this dish— Richmond Hill’s Trini Delite (110-02 Liberty Ave.) and Ozone Park’s Trinciti Roti Shop (111-05 Lefferts Blvd.), for starters. Meanwhile, numerous Long Island fish markets either have shark available or can order it specially, including Southside Fish and Clam (395 W. Montauk Hwy., Lindenhurst), Two Cousins Fish Market (255 Woodcleft Ave., Freeport) and Albertson Seafood (1032 Willis Ave., Albertson). One shark item you won’t find on Long Island is the national dish of Iceland, the daunting Hakarl. Known the world over as one of the worst-tasting foods imaginable, Hakarl is mainly a Greenland shark that has been buried until rotten, then hung in a shed to dry until fermented. Some foods are perhaps better left untasted. Instead, choose a fresh shark steak from a local

market and lay it on the grill this summer. The flesh is firm and flavorful and worth a try—but keep your attacks on shark meat even rarer than shark attacks on humans. smosco@antonmediagroup.com

lthough there were many shark movies before Steven Spielberg’s 1975 Jaws, this terrorizer has put the fear of sharks into millions of beachgoers for decades and remains the first blockbuster in cinema history.

Expect The 4th Awakens on July 31 on SYFY network.
