There are no words to describe the horror of a shark attack but conservation statistics do not lie either. While an average of 4 fatalities per year are due to unprovoked shark attacks out of 56 worldwide, there are 100 million sharks that are victimized by humans as they are affected by either commercial over fishing or illegal fishing by both: sports or commercial fishermen. All results in fatalities: 100 million of them.

The Tiger Shark is the second largest predatory shark in the world, after the Great White. It is also the second most aggressive shark when it comes to attacking humans, although in Hawaii, where most Tiger Shark attacks occur, there is rarely more than one a year. The Tiger can be identified by his tiger-like stripes on his upper body and sheer size - Tiger Sharks measure up to 9 feet long. To see a Tiger Shark while diving is a real treat, but divers are well-advised to swim away from the shark quietly and without panicking.
