Cape Town says no to new shark cage diving permits

The city of Cape Town has said no additional cage diving permits will be issued for False Bay.
Cage diving has been labelled as one of the possible causes for recent great white shark attacks.
Twenty-four-year-old Achmat Hassiem lost his foot this weekend, after he was attacked by a great white at Muizenberg's Sunrise beach.

The shark working group's Gregg Oelofse said there is no obvious link between attacks and False Bay's seal population.
