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.

  • The Most Awesome Stupid Thing!
    Indeed! This is a real nice testimonial, thanks! I especially did like the part about how the dive did motivate them to learn more, courtesy of the always awesome Shark conservation talks by Ben and Manoa. Way to go! And this is the video of that dive. Enjoy!
  • A Fever of Stingrays - Video!
    Betcha those are our Sharks - source. Yup - calling this a fever may well be correct! But then again, maybe not! These are Cownose Rays - yes they do have a stinger but taxonomically, lumping them in with theĀ  proper Stingrays would not be accurate! But I'm digressing. Enjoy!
