Ontogenetic dietary shifts and feeding behavior of the tiger shark, Galeocerdo cuvier, in Hawaiian waters
SynopsisStomach content data from 281 tiger sharks caught during shark control programs in Hawaii between 1967 and 1969, and during 1976 were analyzed to examine feeding habits and ontogenetic shiftsExpand

Scale-dependent effects of habitat on movements and path structure of reef sharks at a predator-dominated atoll.
The effects of habitat on the ecology, movements, and foraging strategies of marine apex predators are largely unknown. We used acoustic telemetry to quantify the movement patterns of blacktip reefExpand

Movements of tiger sharks (Galeocerdo cuvier) in coastal Hawaiian waters
Abstract Externally and internally implanted sonic transmitters were used to track the movements of eight tiger sharks (Galeocerdo cuvier) ranging between 200 and 417 cm total length (TL), capturedExpand

The effects of barotrauma on the catch-and-release survival of southern California nearshore and shelf rockfish (Scorpaenidae, Sebastes spp.)
Two experiments were used to assess the effects of barotrauma on initial capture survival and short-term post- recompression survival of line-caught (range 18-225 m) southern California rockfishExpand

Diel movement patterns of ocean sunfish Mola mola off southern California
Ocean sunfish Mola mola are a seasonally common inhabitant of southern Californian waters, and comprise the largest bycatch component (29% of total catch) of the California drift gill- net fisheryExpand

Testing a new acoustic telemetry technique to quantify long-term, fine-scale movements of aquatic animals
The evolution and improvement of novel applications on acoustic telemetry technology are driven mainly by the need to address more complex behavioral, ecological and physiological questions. A newExpand

Distribution and diet of four species of carcharhinid shark in the Hawaiian Islands: evidence for resource partitioning and competitive exclusion
Competition and predation are both important in structuring the distribution of marine organisms; however, little is known about how competition and predation influence the distribution ofExpand

Distribution, reproduction and diet of the gray reef shark Carcharhinus amblyrhynchos in Hawaii
Distribution, reproduction, and diet of the gray reef shark Carcharhinos arnblj.rhynchos were investigated using data collected during shark control programs in the main Hawdiian Islands (MHI) andExpand

Movements, behavior and habitat preferences of juvenile white sharks Carcharodon carcharias in the eastern Pacific
Understanding of juvenile life stages of large pelagic predators such as the white shark Carcharodon carcharias remains limited. We tracked 6 juvenile white sharks (147 to 250 cm total length) in theExpand
