About This Project

Blacktip sharks (Carcharhinus limbatus) aggregate by the thousands in the warm nearshore waters of Southeast Florida each winter. However, these massive aggregations are comprised exclusively of males. Where are the females? We will travel to their summertime mating/birthing areas to instrument females with acoustic transmitters to delineate their migratory route and identify critical habitat. Knowing the distribution of the entire population is essential for effective management.

Blast off!
