The Australian Shark Attack File analyses data for unprovoked shark attacks from 1996 to 2015. Please note the map does not include attacks that are classified as provoked. The criteria for inclusion can be found here. Data is plotted at closest known location to where the attack occurred. Where a time of an attack is not know the data point reads 0:00. The Australian Shark Attack File is managed and curated by Dr John West.
