Abstract:

This list of shark attacks was prepared from the documented file in the Division of Fishes, United States National Museum, under the sponsorship of the Biology Branch of the Office of Naval Research. Members of the AIBS Shark Research Panel are kept informed of current shark incidents in all parts of the world by means of five clipping or press-cutting services, three of which are subscribed to by Cornell University and two by the Smithsonian Institution. The assistance of these two institutions, as well as of all persons who have cooperated in supplying documentation on individual cases of attack, is gratefully acknowledged. Special thanks go to Mr. Michael Lerner, who solicited and compiled information relating to shark attacks from chapters of the International Game Fishermans Association.
