3rd shark attack off Australian tourist island in 7 weeks
The 33-year-old victim of the attack was among 10 friends who sailed out on a rented yacht from the Queensland mainland on a five-day cruise through the idyllic Whitsunday Islands, Police Inspector Steve O'Connell said.
He was the third person to be attacked by a shark in the area in seven weeks, prompting calls for a swimming ban.
The Whitsunday Islands is a popular tourist site 900 km (560 miles) northwest of the state capital Brisbane.
When the man jumped off the board, he was attacked by a shark.
He said he believed it was the first fatal shark attack in the Whitsundays in recorded history.
"The QAS (Queensland Ambulance Services) and the helicopter were notified, however, by the time the helicopter arrived on scene, the man had lost a substantial amount of blood and had come in to cardiac arrest".
"What the tourism industry is saying to me is that they want long-term solutions, not knee-jerk reactions and that's exactly why we intend to sit around the table with the scientific experts and the tourism industry to work on solutions", she said.
A 46-year-old tourist, Justine Barwick, was attacked on September 19 while swimming from a yacht in Cid Harbor and is recovering.
Despite the efforts of medical teams a Queensland Police spokeswoman confirmed the man died in hospital.
An spokesperson for Austin Health in Melbourne, where Christidis was a research fellow in the urology department, told the Brisbane Times Tuesday that the department was "devastated by the news".
Daniel Gschwind, chief executive of the Queensland Tourism Industry Council, which represents more than 3,000 tourism businesses, said authorities were methodically examining why the unprecedented series of attacks had occurred and whether environmental changes are a factor.
Sharks and Rays Australia principal scientist Barbara Wueringer said the attacks could be occurring from boaties dumping fish carcasses and other organic waste into the harbour.
He died in the hospital, a police statement said on Tuesday. It wasn't immediately known what type of shark attacked Christidis.
Two tourists - a 46-year-old woman and a 12-year-old girl - were attacked in separate incidents in the same area in September.
Conservationists argue that drum lines kill sharks unethically, and also harm other marine life.

Bryce Harper appears headed to the Phillies
Even though Harper is still only 26, a 14-year deal with an average annual value of $30 million per season felt a bit excessive. Zack Greinke ($US34 million), David Price ($US31 million) and Clayton Kershaw ($US31 million) all got more.
