A survey concluded that 14 percent of tourists interested in going for a holiday to Australia might not go ahead with their plans due to shark attacks.

The study led by Hiresquare involved 512 people from the five most important countries for Australian tourism: China, UK, USA, New Zealand and Japan.

The groups that are most sensitive to shark attacks are Chinese and American tourists, surfers, and families with children under 18 years of age.

The research notes that 6.1 percent of the respondents will not travel to Australia anymore due to shark attacks, and an additional 7.8 percent say that shark attacks significantly influence their decision on whether to come to Australia or not.
