The Bull Shark Tagging Programme

E-mail Print PDF

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 Best Shark Dive in the World!
  • No-Cage Shark Diving?
    Nice pic! Source. For those of you who may have read this. Jimmy cannot talk for obvious reasons. But we have spoken, and what I can say is that like I speculated then, it was a diving accident - not good, but nothing to do with Shark strikes let alone cage-less diving. Period - everything else is the usual tired old clap trap. More reflections by Martin here.
  • Barefoot Skiing behind Airplane!
    Source. Too busy for posting substantive stuff. But this is awesome - enjoy!
  • The Revenge of the Sea Kitten!
    From PETA's idiotic Sea Kitten Stories. Bitter and insane, she spends her day plotting revenge against the Land Kittens who live such happy lives in comfortable homes, free from the terror of being eaten. Free no more - behold the terror! Story here.
