Asian Diver (English) - - Shark -

Av­er­age size This oceanic shark is some­times found close in­shore when the con­ti­nen­tal shelf is nar­row. In tem­per­ate seas it may ap­proach the sur­face where it can be ob­served by divers and fish­er­men, but in trop­i­cal wa­ters it tends to seek deeper wa­ter with cooler tem­per­a­tures in its pre­ferred range of 12–20 de­grees centi­grade Al­though they pre­fer to stay at depth, blue sharks can be at­tracted to the sur­face with bait. It may some­times take hours of wait­ing pa­tiently be­fore they ar­rive, but when they do, they will nor­mally stay around the boat for hours and in­ves­ti­gate divers very closely. Great places to en­counter this species are South Africa, Mex­ico, Rhode Is­land, Cal­i­for­nia and the Azores Is­lands
