What the sharks can teach us about shark attacks

The U.S. Department of Homeland Security is asking for help from the public to track the number of shark attacks in the U.K. over the last year.

According to the latest report from the Office for National Statistics, there have been 1,944 shark attacks since April 1, 2016, a decrease of 4.5 percent over the same period last year, the agency said Thursday.

“A significant number of sharks have been identified in the UK over the past year, including over 30 sharks killed in shallow waters, but this is still a very low figure,” the agency’s press release said.

“There have been over 700 shark attacks over the year, a number which has declined by nearly 40 percent from the peak in April 2016.”

While the numbers may seem small, they are significant, said Steve Hargreaves, chief scientist for shark tracking site Shark Tracker.

“We’re looking at a shark attack every two minutes, which is a small number but a lot of sharks are attacking,” he told the CBC News Network.

The shark attacks that occur in the ocean are pretty infrequent and occur at a very shallow depth,” he said. “

The vast majority of these attacks happen in the sea.

The shark attacks that occur in the ocean are pretty infrequent and occur at a very shallow depth,” he said.

In the past 10 years, shark attacks have increased in the British Isles, the U, Ireland and Northern Ireland, according to the report.

“In the UK, shark activity has risen significantly in the last decade, rising by 50 percent,” Hargrey said.

More: This summer, more than 100 people were killed in shark attacks around the world.

Hargrey noted that the number is still low compared to the peak of around 300 attacks that occurred during the mid-2000s.

“Most people think that there is a problem with sharks but the reality is that the problem is in the water,” he explained.

A study released last year found that in the US, sharks are responsible for around a quarter of all shark attacks.

The number of attacks in Canada has dropped by almost half, from 7,000 in 2008 to 3,200 in 2016.

“This year, there is more awareness and more education about shark bite injuries,” Hargeres said.

The latest shark statistics also show that there are fewer shark attacks per capita in Europe, the Middle East and Africa than in North America, the study found.

“Sharks are getting bigger, they’re getting bolder, and they’re starting to be seen as bigger threats than they were even a decade ago,” Haggraves said.
