Sand tiger sharks congregate in the shallow waters of the Delaware Bay in summertime. Researchers at the University of Delaware in Lewes use acoustic tags to track the movements of individual sand tigers in the open ocean throughout the rest of the year.
Myrtle Beach police say Saturday, June 2012 at PM a man swimming near the Avenue Pier was bitten by a shark. Last time we were there I had a 4 foot shark swim within 2 feet of me! It was near the same pier.
