The tiger shark is a saltwater species and inhabits marine neritic and oceanic habitats. It can be found near shelf, reef, and slope habitats and is sometimes associated with coral reefs. Although it prefers the sea grass ecosystems of the coastal areas, it occasionally inhabits other areas due to prey availability.
Tiger sharks have also been documented in river estuaries and harbors.
