Query Pages with Links to our News Archive


For the years 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011 we have query pages created enabling you to search the Country, State/Area, Location, Activity, and the Injury of shark attack related incidents with links to our News Archive enabling you to read about each incident of interest returned from your queries.

To show how only a portion of the incidents are used by other sources as mentioned on the front page. The years 2006, 2007, and 2008 you can compare the differences between what is being reported and the “shark attack” numbers produced by other sources. A good place to start would be the year 2008 and enter "Fatal" in the Injury Field, then check the ISAF 2008 Shark Attack Summary.

For some reason they stopped providing an attack summary in 2009.
