    Story at a glance A surge in shark bites and sightings along the East Coast has beachgoers and elected officials worried.   So far this year, there have been 31 shark bites with six of those bites taking place in New York state waters.   Shark experts think it’s a combination of conservation efforts and warming waters that are causing the uptick in sightings.  

    This week, swimmers were barred from going out in the water at two Long Island beaches after three sharks were spotted off the coast and beaches along Cape Cod were closed after 20 great white sharks were detected swimming along the shore.
