You can find multiple shark species in New York’s marine waters, and some of the most well-known are makos, threshers, and blue sharks. Our shores also serve as important foraging and nursery grounds for white, sandbar (brown), sand tiger, and dusky sharks, which are all protected species due to their vulnerable life histories and depleted populations.

Sharks are typically found in the deep waters offshore, but they can also be found chasing baitfish in the surf and coastal bays.

While you #RecreateLocal and enjoy the coastal environment, please report any sightings of live or dead sharks to DEC's Shark Spotter Digital Survey. Information provided to DEC helps researchers better understand New York's shark populations. You can also #AdventureAtHome with us by checking out the Shark Spotter Public Viewer to learn more about New York sharks.

Before going fishing, make sure to visit our Recreational Shark Fishing webpage for information about permit requirements and regulations. Learn more about shark fishing and proper handling techniques by watching NOAA’s Shark Endorsement Education video.
