Unfortunately some media outlets sensationalize some shark interactions as full blown killer sharks on the loose. However, as you can see in the map below, shark attacks and bites are not that common. If you notice, most shark bites are clustered on the east coast of Florida. This is due to rough surf which creates limited visibility for the sharks.

Of course with surf comes surfers. More people in the water leads to the possibility of more interactions.

    i believe that MH370 crashed near Round Is. Mauritius, i’d like to see your shark tracker for March and April of 2014 for this area, if sharks have swam to this area for a few days then left the area, it only means they were eating well, if it did crash there items would have shark bite holes in them, and many items found in this area do have shark bite marks on them. This area has been avoided since day one, yet the authorities did say items would wash onto Reunion Is, how would they know this a few weeks after it disappeared, item should have washed onto Australian shores but not one item yet after over 3 years, but so much to wash onto these islands and to the west of these islands.
