Investigations of shark habitat use and foraging ecology have been hampered by inaccuracies inherent in many current methods. Although catch rates and acoustic telemetry may be appropriate for studying habitat use at a broad geographic scale, they are often not adequate for finescale determination of habitat use. Also, these techniques cannot provide data on how sharks behave in different habitats or on feeding behavior or social interactions. In this paper, we present a method that allows… CONTINUE READING
