Worldwide dangerous shark attacks have increased, with 90 occurring in 2011  the highest since the year 2000, when sharks attacked 80 people. Shark-related fatalities for last year were also above average, with six deaths reported.
The news might have been even worse in shark-popular spots like Florida.


Different parts of the world have experienced many animal attacks and with the increasing population and infringement of the natural animal habitat, sharks are not spared and as a result many shark attacks are reported while some dangerous shark attacks still go unreported. With the increase of transport and communication, lifeguards and beach patrols have been able to save lives and report the deadly attacks which would not have been accounted for.

Causes of many shark attacks.

The existing number of sharks in many parts and the overall shark population has increased in places like Florida, California and Hawaii. Many tourists have been flocking these beautiful beaches which are also shark infested waters. With different sharks attacking during the day and other sharks attacking during the night, lone swimmers have always been victims of shark attacks while waders and surfers have also been attacks by sharks whether provoked shark attacks or unprovoked shark attacks.  While those who cannot swim, they end up drowning and become easy pray or victims of Shark Attack. Divers and people who find pleasure while on the surface of these treacherous waters end up being attacked by sharks depending on the time of day or night.

Florida had its lowest total since 2004, which was 12,” said ichthyologist George Burgess in a press release.
“Maybe it’s a reflection of the downturn in the economy and the number of tourists coming to Florida, or the amount of money native Floridians can spend taking holidays and going to the beach," added Burgess, who is director of the file housed at the Florida Museum of Natural History on the UF campus.

Although Florida's number of shark attacks declined in 2010, the state still led the U.S., with 13 reported attacks. Twenty-three other attacks happened in these other states:
North Carolina: 5
California: 4
Hawaii: 4
South Carolina: 4
Georgia: 1
Maine: 1
Oregon: 1
Texas: 1
Virginia: 1
Washington: 1
Outside of the U.S., the following countries also experienced shark attacks in 2010:
Australia: 14
South Africa: 8
Vietnam: 6
Egypt: 6


Egypt is noteworthy because five of its six attacks, which included one fatality, all happened during early December and were attributed to just two sharks. Its not always  the number of deadly white sharks in the area which can trigger many shark attacks but the number of people on the beach which is shark infested. Despite the fact that not all that many sharks are provoked to attacks but sometimes you never know what these deadly sharks can be up to while  many victims are out there just waiting to become easy shark attack prey. The attacks occurred within a 5-day period.
“This was a situation that was hugely unusual by shark-attack standards,” said Burgess, who has researched sharks at the museum for more than 35 years. “It was probably the most unusual shark incident of my career.”

He thinks a combination of natural and human factors contributed to the attacks in the Red Sea. These include higher than normal water temperatures caused by an unusually hot summer, international livestock traders dumping sheep carcasses into the water, and divers feeding reef fishes and sharks.
“The reality is, going into the sea is a wilderness experience,” he said. “You’re visiting a foreign environment -- it’s not a situation where you’re guaranteed success.”


With that in mind, it might not be such a good time to swim off the coast of Florida, where 100,000 sharks were recently spotted swimming close to shore. Helicopter pilot Steve Irwin, who saw the sharks, believes they were spinner sharks, which received that name because of their unusual method of feeding. They swim rapidly through schools, spinning along the axis of their bodies and sometimes leaping out of the water.
