As what can be inferred from this list, sharks rely on their natural environment for food. In these cases, the male is equipped with a pair of modified pelvic fins known as claspers. The pink salmon lives in the coastal and stream habitats ranging from California to the arctic region. Many sharks, however, have developed specific mechanisms that help that capture their prey.

It holds most of life on earth. 97% of earth’s water is there. Some parts of this page won't work property. However, with the benefit of hindsight, the substantial variability in sighting data from this area over summer months (Cliff et al. 2007) and seasonal changes in their oceanic distribution (Sequeira et al. 2012), makes it unclear whether these earlier data are indicative of a true subpopulation decline.

They are rarely found in water more than 65 feet deep, although they have strayed as deep as 300 feet. They have rods, which sense light and darkness, and most have cones, which allow them to see color and details. ( Some sharks have no or few cones, making them colorblind.) Like a human eye, a shark eye has a cornea, lens, pupil and iris. Depending on the time of the year, species that can be found in the bays and surf include Sand Tiger, Dusky, Hammerhead, Bonnethead, Finetooth, Bull, Sharpnose, Dogfish and Nurse.
