Joe Saba's Floridian White Shark Problem?

"This pic was taken at popular fishing/dive wreck, the Eagle, off of Islamorada in about 90' of water!"

That's the caption to this remarkable image on Facebook today and yes that's a big white shark (Carcharodon carcharias) apparently cruising around in Florida waters.

Is this a problem? 

Not really for us sharky folks this is way cool, in fact a chance of a lifetime to be cageless with a wonderful shark species like this in pristine water conditions. 

Not like this video encounter a few years ago again in Florida waters at 170' feet. Spooky would best describe this chance deep water encounter. We love our whites but we also love our white sharks in clear water conditions when we have the advantage - somewhat;)
