Cage diving; a popular activity and ever increasing topic of controversy. Does this activity teach sharks to correlate people to food and thus increase the chances of being bitten?

Fallows, of Apex Shark Expeditions in False Bay, South Africa, has been running cage tours for 20 years and uses his experience to defend some of the accusations against him and his industry. As a tour provider he has an obvious motivation to argue for cage-diving, however, that does not make any of his arguments less true.
