SHARK ATTACKS ARCHIVE

November 16, 2011 § Leave a comment


It’s been a good story for newspapers over the years.  Shark attacks.  Far more of them were occurring in the 1930’s – obviously when the Australian populated coast had better stocks of seafood to attract and feed the predators.

Looking at a small sample of shark attacks in newspaper files indicates how these tragedies gave been forgotten.  There has been, seemingly hundreds of shark attacks around our coast – more than what is commonly stated.

Here is a sample from the archives from pages 10 and 11 – it could form a good university study in changing journalism standards over the years.
