The Fear Beneath was founded in the Spring of 1975 on Amity Island, New England, rooted in the ideology of public safety advocacy, shark education, and marine conservation.
Since that time, The Fear Beneath has become the world’s premier source of breaking shark attack news and information, as well as providing resources on shark attacks, shark sightings, and shark-related information all across the world.
Here at The Fear Beneath we are constantly seeking out strategic alliances that benefit all parties – collaborating with The Shark Research Committee, The International Shark Attack File, and the founders of Shark Camo, among others.
