Apex predators serve to keep prey numbers in check. How can we say that tiger sharks are apex predators?

Answer

Tiger sharks act as a crucial balancing force in ocean ecosystems. They restrict the numbers of animals like sea turtles by feeding on them and limiting their behavior by preventing them from overgrazing the seagrass beds. Furthermore, tiger sharks love warm water, they eat almost anything, have a huge litter and are the hardiest shark species . If the planet and its oceans continue to warm, some species will be winners and others will be losers, and tiger sharks are likely to be winners.

From the composition:

I think it would be unfair not to mention that though tiger sharks are apex predators. They act as a crucial balancing force in ocean ecosystems, constraining the numbers of animals like sea turtles and limit their behaviour by preventing them from overgrazing the sea grass beds. Furthermore, tiger sharks love warm water, they eat almost anything, have a huge litter and are the hardiest shark species. If the planet and its oceans continue to warm, some species will be winners and others will be losers,  and tiger sharks are likely to be winners.
