Shark Attack Related Incident File Home Page

 

Welcome!

First you should know this site is a research tool we use at Shark Attack Survivors to better our efforts, contact other shark victims, monitor trends in current (up to the minute) and past shark – human incidents from the 15% of the world that reports shark attacks. 90% of all known shark attacks and shark attack related incidents come from English speaking counties.

We try to keep a record of all reported or submitted “Shark Attack Related Incidents”. Not every incident listed here maybe a “Shark Attack”. Shark Attack Related Incidents include shark attacks, but also includes all other related incidents involving sharks and humans.

The results you see here will differ from most other shark attack statistics you may find elsewhere. The main reason is we are primarily focused on providing information for the "Ocean Going Public".

You will have problems comparing the SAS File totals to the ISAF totals. The reason is we list all seven (7) different types of shark attacks while the ISAF only reports on one type of shark attack. In addition we list all the known incidents then split them up into 3 categories (Injured, Harassed, and Fatal) While the ISAF doesn't care if an injury occurred a person being knocked off a surfboard is considered a shark attack while some persons killed by sharks are not considered a shark attack because of the activity they or someone near them was participating in.
