“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.

A man has been bitten by a shark at a remote barramundi farm in northern Western Australia.

The 18-year-old suffered two bites to his right leg, one to the thigh and one to the lower leg.

The ABC understands the man was working on the farm in Cone Bay, north of Broome in the Buccaneer Archipelago, when he was confronted by a bull shark.

The Royal Flying Doctor Service was contacted, but their services were not required.

A spokeswoman said the man was being treated in the local Derby Hospital.

RFDS has since been asked to transport him from Derby Hospital to Royal Perth Hospital tomorrow morning as he may need surgery due to tendon damage.

Female bull sharks grow to an average of about 2.4 metres, while the males are usually slightly smaller. They live in both fresh and salt water.

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.
