Doesn't the population number tag work per map square, not for the entire biome?
Yes - as far as is known, every region tile (i.e. 16x16 embark) gets its own population, and when you embark in an area you appear to get access to all populations within a 7x7 region tile area centered around your embark (though it still filters based on your local biomes).

P.S. If you don't get this note, let me know and I'll write you another.
It's amazing how dwarves can make a stack of bones completely waterproof and magmaproof.
It's amazing how they can make an entire floodgate out of the bones of 2 cats.

Now embarking with the second science expedition. This time I've done two sinister biomes instead of a haunted one, so hopefully I'll get few zombie sharks.

Unless things have changed, to breed, the [PET] tag is required. Sea Monsters lack that tag, so you'll need to mod that in at the very least.

Sea monsters also lack something more vital for breeding - genders.
