    About This Project

    Growing concern for declining shark populations is driving the need for effective conservation and management plans. An important, yet often missing, component of these plans is accurate dietary data. Tiger sharks are iconic predators, notorious for the wide variety of prey they consume. Using satellite tags, our goal is to investigate the link between oil platforms and the prevalence of an intriguing prey item common to tiger sharks in the northern Gulf of Mexico: terrestrial birds.
