The Bull Shark Tagging Programme

The Bull Shark Tagging Programme aims to better understand the behaviour and ecology of free-ranging bull sharks. What started with a pilot study in the Bahamas to test the feasibility of studying movement patterns and habitat use of bull sharks with state-of-the-art pop-up satellite archival tags is now a much broader project that has its main field site in Fiji.

Methods used to study presence and absence as well as movements in and around Shark Reef Marine Reserve include satellite tracking and acoustic monitoring. In addition to these indirect observation techniques, direct observations of bull sharks in their natural habitat give insight into the secret life of these fascinating top predators.

I'm certainly no fan of Jordan's specific brand of troglodyte Shark diving - but it definitely does neither endanger the Sharks nor does it pose a safety risk for the public, the more as the old tired myth about training Sharks to associate humans with food has long been debunked as being utter
  • Baiting Lions?
    Source. Have you seen this? And if so, could anybody please tell me what it means? Because it is being praised, and liked, and shared around, and commented upon like it was some ultimate piece of wisdom - whereas to me, it looks like nothing but gibberish, and moronic to boot? Don't know what I'm talking about? Is this against Shark baiting? If so, NOBODY baits Sharks to make
  • Western Australia - Imminent Threat Policy!
    Source. Oh for fuck's sake. Read this. Seriously, how can a Shark be a threat if you know where it is! But instead of doing the sensible thing = telling the people to stay away from that beach til the GWS moves on, they are using the pings from the tags to go and kill it.  This idiotic policy is saving no-one but instead, it will only have one possible outcome: they will eventually end
