THE TODAY SHOW KICKS OFF SHARK WATCH.

NOT TO BE CONFUSED WITH DISCOVERY'S SHARK WEEK COMING UP IN AUGUST.

NBC'S KERRY SANDERS HAS MORE ON INCREASING SHARK SIGHTINGS.

TAKE A LOOK.

KERRY SANDERS: "They say the scariest word in the English language is shark! A lot of it has to do with the movie 'Jaws,' but there are changing attitudes and here in Montauk, we're going to get the chance to meet the Shark Brothers who are part of an organization here that is changing attitudes. It's called catch and release. Now that's really popular with anglers, but with sharks, well, it will surprise you that 96 percent of sharks caught by recreational fishermen today are released. I'll have more on that coming up on 'Shark Watch Week,' which kicks off here on TODAY. Now back to you."

ACCORDING TO THE FLORIDA MUSEUM OF NATURAL HISTORY AND THE UNIVERSITY OF FLORIDA:

"WORLDWIDE, THERE IS AN AVERAGE OF 50 TO 70 SHARK ATTACKS EVERY YEAR.

THE NUMBER OF ATTACKS HAS BEEN INCREASING OVER THE DECADES AS A RESULT OF INCREASED HUMAN POPULATIONS AND THE USE OF THE OCEANS FOR RECREATIONAL ACTIVITY." Return to index of stories...
