Tiger Shark Spatial Ecology Northeastern Cabo Verde

We have surveyed large-bodied coastal sharks in northeastern Cabo Verde since 2016, with a focus on the higher trophic predator – the tiger shark (Galeocerdo cuvier).

Using standardized scientific fishing techniques we capture, measure, sex, tag and release large animals. We have also deployed 12 fin-mounted SPOT tags to study their spatial ecology. To date we have gathered data on tiger shark abundance and distribution which has been used to highlight potential residency/connectivity and identify critical foraging and nursery habitats.
