Although occasionally sighted in shallow, inshore waters, thresher sharks are primarily pelagic; they prefer the open ocean, venturing no deeper than 500 metres (1,600 ft). Common threshers tend to be more common in coastal waters over continental shelves. Common thresher sharks are found along the continental shelves of North America and Asia of the North Pacific, but are rare in the Central and Western Pacific. In the warmer waters of the Central and Western Pacific, bigeye and pelagic thresher sharks are more common. A thresher shark was seen on the live video feed from one of the ROVs monitoring BP’s Macondo oil well blowout in the Gulf of Mexico. This is significantly deeper than the 500m previously thought to be their limit.
A bigeye has also turned up in the western Mediterranean and so distribution may be wider than previously believed or environmental factors may be forcing sharks to search for new territories
