Confirmed Unprovoked Shark Attacks (1882-Present)
Victim Activity During Unprovoked Shark Attacks in Florida by Decade
Species Involved with Unprovoked Shark Attacks in Florida
Requiem spp. are members of the family Carcharhinidae. Examples of these include blacktip, spinner, and sandbar sharks. Due to the similarity of small coastal species in this group in tooth shape, body size, and appearance, it is often difficult to assign a species in bite cases. Based on life history traits, ISAF suspects blacktip sharks (C. limbatus) account for the majority of these requiem bites in Florida. However, these cases lack enough evidence to be conclusive.
