About the Poster
With Shark Week fast approaching this poster gives an insight into shark attacks with help from SharkAttackFile.net. This poster takes a look at the trend of shark attacks over the last hundred years 1913-2013.
I got wondering if sharks had become more aggressive over the past hundred years – correlating with more shark attacks (note: correlation does not equal causation). So I set out to find the data (which I did) of documented shark attacks over the last century. Lo and behold there was an increase in the number of shark attacks which peaked in the 1960′s and then just a few years ago.
