Sharks in NYC

Mohammed Hussain, Veronica Koval, Victoria Pokovba

Sharks are a vital part of the NYC oceanic ecosystem. Over the past years, rising sea temperatures are attracting nonnative shark species and changing the ecosystem.

NYC is home to several shark species but recently, nonnative species like the Black Tip Reef Shark have been spotted. In this project, we will explore how factors such as water temperatures are affecting migration patterns of native shark species. As climate change is altering sea water temperatures, nonnative shark sightings will increase as sharks are following their prey.
