Many Floridians believe that Great White Sharks do not occur in Florida's mostly tropical water. However, they couldn't be more wrong. Recently, George a great white shark that was tagged by OCEARCH popped up in the Everglades National Park. According to OCEARCH and Jenny Staletovich of the Miami Herald, George is 10' and weighs 700 pounds. George, is not the only great white to have been spotted off the West coast of Florida. According to Dorsal Watch a 16' great white was recently spotted off the coast of Tampa, Florida, too. Don't worry it's not Jaws, humans aren't the natural food source for sharks. Most bites are cases of mistaken identity, it's just that sharks investigate with their mouths, and one bite can create a lot of trauma to a person. That is why regardless of your water sport, or maritime profession you should carry a maritime tourniquet with you at all times. While most tourniquets are a inconvenient to carry, and are likely to be lost of misplaced by most, there is a solution. The OMNA Amphibious Tourniquet is a wearable tourniquet that allows users to keep their tourniquet strapped around their ankle if they so choose. This method of carrying a tourniquet keeps it out of the way of whatever you are doing, and doesn't add another thing you have to carry on your duty belt. If you are a diver, merchant marine, boat captain, sailor, spear fisherman, or the like the tourniquet choice for you is clear, the OMNA Amphibious Tourniquet is the best for you.
