I have not read of any accounts (except in fiction) of sharks being attracted to megaplumes. I suppose though in theory it could be possible as often where hot and cold water meet, there is a greater level of nutrients, which in turn, often brings more plankton and fish. Sharks could be attracted to this abundance of fish although whether this happens at megaplumes I don't know,

The informations about shark etology are very poor, the scientists don't really know about all the aspects of sharks life, megaplume included..
