It is unclear if the same shark was involved in both instances.

Only occasionally do we report a shark attack over the 120 days that make up peak tourist season. These shark attacks Summer 2022 bring the total to 3 persons this year.

The ocean off the East Coast is home to more than 50 shark species. These range from the small spiny dogfish to the much larger white shark.

We reported yesterday that only 1 person had been attacked by a shark prior to Monday’s news.

Three total shark bites puts Summer 2022 numbers in line with historic numbers.

There were no serious injuries nor any fatalities caused by these bites.
