Sharks and Rays

Port Royal Sound is heaven for sharks and rays. In fact, these waters have an astounding diversity of different types of plants and animals - sharks are a great example of this. About 20 species of non-bony fishes patrol these local creeks and rivers. Most of our sharks are relatively small species, but many of these larger species use these waters as pupping grounds, venturing into the Broad River and others to have their young.
