Abstract

In 1981 Miller and Collier reported on 47 unprovoked shark attacks which had taken place off California and Oregon from July 1926 to November 1979. Since that date, 12 shark attacks involving humans have taken place: two in 1980, one in 1981, four in 1982, one in 1983, and four in 1984. Encompassed in these 12 attacks were: six surfers, three skin divers, one paddle boarder, one scuba diver, and one swimmer. In ten of the twelve attacks the white shark was the species of implication. by geographic area: one attack occurred off southern California, four off central California, four off northern California, and three off Oregon.
