Av­er­age size The big­gest threat to pelagic species such as the oceanic whitetip is the mount­ing fish­ing pres­sure through­out its range. Large sharks are also po­ten­tial preda­tors, es­pe­cially for im­ma­ture in­di­vid­u­als and ju­ve­niles Al­though not the big­gest of the re­quiem sharks, they are op­por­tunis­tic and com­pet­i­tive hunters and will of­ten ap­proach divers and in­ves­ti­gate them closely. They are known to tar­get the vic­tims of air and sea dis­as­ters, and are sus­pected to be guilty of many un­recorded hu­man fa­tal­i­ties.
