Shark attacks reach record high in 2015 – majority take place in US
The number of unprovoked shark attacks reached a record high of 98 in 2015 – a massive jump of 26 from 2014, beating the previous record of 88 from back in 2000.
The US led the way with 59 unprovoked attacks, surpassing its previous high of 53 in 2012 and 2000, according to the International Shark Attack File, which began compiling data 57 years ago.
While the number of attacks increased, the number of fatalities remained on par with previous years, with six fatalities recorded across the globe – two on Reunion Island and single incidents in Australia, New Caledonia, Egypt, and Hawaii.
