Recife is situated where two rivers flow into the Atlantic ocean. When the port was expanded the natural habitat of the bull shark was destroyed. The sharkes moved towards the beaches of Recife. In 13 years time 47 shark attacks took place in which 17 people died. Also the leakage of blood from the leftovers from a slaughterhouse nearby a river have probably been a major cause of the shark attacks.
In 2006 the docking facilities include a total of 2,784 meter of quay.
In 1815 the first initiatives have been taken to improve anchorage.
