The tracker, thats produced through the Guy Harvey Research Institute at NSU, is on an interactive online site that has been set up to allow shark enthusiasts to follow these fierce fish as they travel around different parts of the world.

Florida once again topped both the nation and the world for its number of shark attacks with a total of 24 unprovoked incidences during 2013, according to statistics compiled by SharkAttackFile.net.

That number makes up nearly half of the 53 unprovoked attacks that occurred across the country. Hawaii was second in the U.S. with a total of 16 attacks, including two fatal ones, while California and South Carolina tied for third with a total of four each.

On a global level, the U.S. was by far the leader, followed by Australia with 13 attacks.
