The habitat of a shark depends on the species. They may be cold-blooded – which usually implies that they would prefer areas where the temperatures are very low – but some sharks living in warm, temperate, and cold waters… So, where do sharks live? Sharks are classified by the surface temperature of the water which they inhabit.
The oceanic whitetip shark is found throughout the world in tropical and sub-tropical waters.It is a pelagic species, generally remaining offshore in the open ocean, on the outer continental shelf, or around oceanic islands in water depths greater than 600 feet.

A 'Ping' is determined when the tagged shark's dorsal fin breaks the surface of the water and transmits a signal to a satellite overhead. The transmission then sends back an estimated geo-location. Less than 30 days. More than 30 days Recent Pings. 24 hours travel: ...
For example, if a map from 1983 shows the area in question as having a “moderate density” of hard clams, while a newer map shows “low density”, the property is still considered shellfish habitat and subject to the shellfish habitat rules as such. It should be noted that these maps do not include undocumented, regulated shellfish areas.
OCEARCH is a data-centric organization built to help scientists collect previously unattainable data in the ocean. Our mission is to accelerate the ocean’s return to abundance through fearless innovations in scientific research, education, outreach and policy.
Unprovoked incidents are those “where an attack on a live human by a shark occurs in its natural habitat without human provocation of the shark. Incidents involving…shark-inflicted scavenge damage to already dead humans (most often drowning victims), attacks on boats, and provoked incidents occurring in or out of the water are not ...
