via Mysterious Gatherings of Nearly 1,400 Sharks Spotted Off Northeast Coast | The Weather Channel

It’s still unclear why the animals are coming together, but researchers suggest they are likely gathering in the waters from Long Island to Nova Scotia to grab a bite, according to recent findings published in the Journal of Fish Biology.
