“A Shark bite is only one of many possible endings to a Shark Attack”
“An UNPROVOKED Shark Attack is only one of many types of Shark Attack”

When you see the words Unprovoked or Bite associated with Shark Attacks, someone is trying to hide shark dangers you may face should you enter the water. In most cases, the word unprovoked equals the number of incidents shared with the public. Any other type of Shark Attack is kept a secret from the public.

Teen bitten by shark at Cocoa Beach Pier

Jaedyn Wagner, 15, was surfing around 10 yards south of the pier July 10 in murky water. Around 8 a.m. she caught a wave and headed into shore.

Once she reached the shore break, she hopped off her board, inadvertently landing on a shark. It grabbed her right foot, but her stayed calm and used her left foot to kick the grey-finned shark until it released her.

Wagner made it back to shore where her mother and coach at the time stopped the bleeding and treated her on scene before heading home. However, the incident hasn’t kept the Palm Bay resident out of the water, and she continues to surf.

A simple explanation of the word unprovoked is chosen to be shared. Each year shark attack researchers choose certain shark attacks they share with the public. The ISAF website states, “All of the data publically available on the ISAF website is from unprovoked incidents.” Ocean users, beware that the ISAF has 6800 incidents on file, with only 3292, or 47%, being chosen to be shared with the public. In 2019 they chose 45%, and in 2020 they only chose 44% of the investigated incidents.
