Did You Know?
There are many species of fish that inhabit Tarpon Bay including sharks and stingrays. Sharks are essential apex predators that keep fish populations in check. These animals are incredible in the sense (no pun intended) that sharks have more than five senses. One of their additional senses is called electroreception. This allows sharks to detect prey that emit electrical impulses. Though the media sometimes portrays these animals as vicious killers, these animals rarely come into dangerous contact with humans. Statistically speaking, falling coconuts pose a greater threat to humans than sharks. Smaller shark species that have been caught or found in Tarpon Bay include bonnethead, blacktip and nurse sharks.
