Shark attacks decline worldwide in midst of economic recession
Date:2/19/2009

heir interest in the recreational activity is so high. "It's oftentimes not a group that is economically blessed, but all they have to do is drive to the beach with the board and get into the water, and the rest is free," he said.

To a certain extent, divers, like surfers, pursue their sport as something of an avocation, leaving swimmers and waders as the group most likely to be affected by economic hardship, Burgess said. "These are sort of the average folks that go to the water for recreation, lie on the beach, work on their suntan and take their kids in the surf for a swim," he said. "I would expect their numbers to decline in 2009."

Over the long term, though, Burgess expects shark attacks to rise because of a gradual upswing from one decade to the next. "We've already surpassed the numbers of attacks in the previous 10-year period," he said, "so we know this decade will be higher than the last."
