Counting California's White Shark Population

  How many white sharks are swimming in California’s coastal waters? A new survey debunks an earlier claim that the marine predators’ numbers are declining, and that the species as a whole is endangered.

  Sharks are generally solitary creatures, says George Burgess, but they can be found in sizable groups at locations where their preferred food sources are abundant.

The Sonoma and Marin coast is dotted with such “aggregation” sites for the Whites, Burgess adds, such as Goat Rock Beach near Jenner, and around the mouth of Tomales Bay.
