Florida has topped the global charts in shark bite numbers for decades. The trend continued in 2021 researchers said. Out of 73 reported unprovoked incidents around the world last year, 28 were in Florida, representing 60 percent of the total cases in the U.S. and 38 percent worldwide. That number was consistent with Florida’s most recent five-year annual average of 25-shark attacks.
