2015 Sets New Record for Shark Attacks
Last year set a record number of unprovoked shark attacks world wide with 98 total. The past highest amount of attacks was 88 attacks in the year 2000 according to reports. Scientists think the increase is due to the spread of humans near the oceans and the recovering numbers of sharks in the ocean. The United States had the most attacks in 2015 with 59, 30 of those coming from the state of Florida. The rest came from the Carolina's, Hawaii, Texas, and California.
