|Location||Wreck of the Caribsea: 34.21, -76.10, Atlantic Ocean|
There were huge schools of sand tiger sharks in midwater (around a depth of 50ft) above the wreck of the Caribsea. We saw at least 50-60. They were all female (we did not see any males at all), and many of the sand tigers were heavily pregnant. Most of the sharks were staying above the thermocline, in the warmer mid-level water (the wreck hit the bottom at 90ft).
