“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.

Man bitten by shark while surfing in New Smyrna Beach

A man was bitten by a shark while surfing Sunday in New Smyrna Beach.

Volusia County Beach Safety Ocean Rescue says it happened around 1 p.m. just south of the New Smyrna Beach Jetty.

Officials say the 24-year-old man from Miami was surfing in waist-deep water when he was bitten in the foot.

He said he saw the 6-foot shark feeding on bait fish right before he was a bit.

His injuries were non-life-threatening and he was not hospitalized.

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.
