Hope Spot - The White Shark Cafe: protect this area of seasonal aggregation

About Hope Spot - The White Shark Cafe: protect this area of seasonal aggregation
This “shared offshore foraging area” (SOFA) in oceanic waters of the northeast Pacific Ocean is an area of seasonal aggregation for endangered adult great white sharks (Carcharodon carcharias). The White Shark Café occurs entirely in international waters, with sharks coming from the coastal wintering areas of central California, Mexico’s Guadalupe Island, and Hawaii. Shark aggregation in a persistent and predictable area for several months of the year such as what occurs at the White Shark Café is vital to the global great white shark population. The fact that this coalescence occurs in a region of low primary productivity suggests that adult sharks may be using this area primarily for mating purposes; as males tend to aggregate more than females and are very active in the water column, suggesting some form of mating display.
