Western Australia has been a hub of shark attacks over the past decade.
In 2012 to 2013, there were eight shark attacks off the coast of Western Australia alone. This topped the yearly average which has historically hovered around 4.4. attacks per year.
Again, scientists explain that this is probably because due to the increased number of people in the water as a whole.
New South Wales has also experienced a number of shark attacks, including a diver who lost his life earlier this year.
