The Marine Science and Organisms Organization has launched a campaign in Libya to reduce spatial overlap between predators and recreational water users. 

"The campaign aims to raise awareness of the dangers of marine predators in general, and sharks in particular," Ezzalnasr Abzio, head of the organization, said in press statements.

Abzio blamed overfishing and fishermen using explosives technics, which he said leave traces that attract predators during the summer and make them more voracious.

He pledged to work towards expanding media awareness to prevent human casualties and called for enhanced monitoring measures to protect Libyan shores.

The organization had previously warned of the widespread use of explosive technics in fishing, deeming it a direct threat to human life, especially with the onset of the summer season.
