University of Florida reports 2012 US shark attacks highest since 2000
Date:2/11/2013

ent, largely due to the provocative nature of the activity. Swimmers were affected by 22 percent of attacks, followed by divers, with 8 percent.

Burgess said 30 million to 70 million sharks are killed every year in fisheries, and people need to recognize humans pose a greater threat to elasmobranchs (sharks, skates and rays) than sharks do to humans. Worldwide over-fishing, especially to meet demands for flesh and fins used in shark fin soup, an Asian delicacy, continues to contribute to the decline in shark populations, Burgess said.

In the case of a shark attack, researchers advise taking a proactive response, such as hitting the shark's nose, since they respect size and power.

"Shark attacks are rare and it doesn't matter whether you call them attacks or bites or bumps your chances of having any of them are slim," Burgess said.
