    Yes lots of shark attack “files” are missing attacks which then skews science and safety. So why even bother? For ads and ca$h. Cha Ching..

      All the information is valuable. It’s extremely tough to find every shark attack in the world. I have found many in foreign languages and that some remote areas do not even report them. There are also people who choose to keep the information private. In the end, the information we compile does give us an understanding of negative interactions.

    What about the two shark attacks on Ascension Island this year? They’re not on the map.

      I have two listed: Frankie Gonsalves and Kawika Matsu. Are we missing any?
