The homing behavior of scalloped hammerhead sharks (Sphyrna lewini) to and fro between Espiritu Santo Seamount and Las Animas Island and the surrounding pelagic environment was studied to reveal their mechanisms of navigation in the oceanic environment. Four sharks were tagged with ultrasonic transmitters and tracked at the former location and one shark at the latter site during July, August, or September between 1981 and 1988. Hammerhead swimming movements were highly oriented: the mean… Expand
Evidence of site fidelity and deep diving behaviour of scalloped hammerhead shark (Sphyrna lewini) around the Saint Peter and Saint Paul Archipelago, in the equatorial Mid-Atlantic ridge
Seven scalloped hammerhead sharks (Sphyrna lewini) were satellite tagged around the Saint Peter and Saint Paul Archipelago (SPSPA), located at the equatorial Mid-Atlantic ridge, to investigate theirExpand
VERTICAL AND HORIZONTAL MOVEMENTS OF THE SCALLOPED HAMMERHEAD SHARK (SPHYRNA LEWINI) AROUND MALPELO AND COCOS ISLANDS (TROPICAL EASTERN PACIFIC) USING SATELLITE TELEMETRY
Understanding distribution ranges and the daily movement patterns of pelagic fishes are key aspects for the establishment and planning of protected areas for their conservation. In this study theExpand

Ontogenetic migration of a female scalloped hammerhead shark Sphyrna lewini in the Gulf of California
TLDR
This study documents a female scalloped hammerhead shark changing life history phases from a nursery-inhabiting juvenile inshore to a migratory sub-adult offshore, suggesting maximization of foraging opportunities and continued growth. Expand
Movements of tiger sharks (Galeocerdo cuvier) in coastal Hawaiian waters
TLDR
The data suggest that Hawaiian tiger sharks move within large home ranges and that they can efficiently navigate between distant parts of their range, even when this requires crossing open ocean waters. Expand
Seasonal changes in movements and habitat preferences of the scalloped hammerhead shark (Sphyrna lewini) while refuging near an oceanic island
TLDR
Evidence is provided that hammerheads are highly selective of location and depth while refuging and perform exploratory vertical movements by diving the width of the mixed layer and occasionally diving below the thermocline while moving offshore, most likely for foraging. Expand
Movements of scalloped hammerhead sharks (Sphyrna lewini) at Cocos Island, Costa Rica and between oceanic islands in the Eastern Tropical Pacific
TLDR
The hammerheads tagged at Cocos were more resident than those visiting from elsewhere, suggesting that the Galapagos and Malpelo populations may use Cocos as a navigational waypoint or stopover during seasonal migrations to the coastal Central and South America. Expand
Residency of the scalloped hammerhead shark (Sphyrna lewini) at Malpelo Island and evidence of migration to other islands in the Eastern Tropical Pacific
Sixty nine hammerhead sharks, Sphyrna lewini, were tagged at Malpelo Island (Colombia) with ultrasonic transmitters during March 2006, 2007 and 2008, as part of a study to understand their residencyExpand

The demography, spatial distribution, and movement patterns of leopard sharks (Triakis semifasciata) aggregating near the head of a submarine canyon in La Jolla, California, USA, were investigated toExpand
Extensive use of mesopelagic waters by a Scalloped hammerhead shark (Sphyrna lewini) in the Red Sea
TLDR
This study provides evidence that mesopelagic habitats might be more commonly used by S. lewini than previously suggested and identifies deep diving behavior throughout the 24-h cycle over the entire 6-month tracking period. Expand

Diel movements of scalloped hammerhead sharks, Sphyrna lewini Griffith and Smith, to and from a seamount in the Gulf of California
TLDR
The temporal pattern of shark occurrences was related to the light-dark cycle: individuals departed prior to dusk and returned near dawn next morning, however, arrivals and departures of more than one shark within short daytime periods indicated group movements to and from the seamount. Expand
Movements of blue sharks (Prionace glauca) in depth and course
TLDR
Acoustic telemetry was used to follow 22 blue sharks,Prionace glauca (Linnaeus), over the continental shelf and slope in the region between George's Bank and Cape Hatteras between 1979 and 1986, finding that they may orient to the earth's magnetic field, or to the ocean's electric fields, allowing them to swim on a constant heading in the absence of celestial cues.

Schooling in Sphyrna lewini, a Species with Low Risk of Predation: a Non‐egalitarian State
TLDR
The differences between schools of hammerheads and those of small teleosts are consistent with schooling in hammerheads functioning not to confer protection from predation, but to permit conspecifics to interact socially during the resting phase of their diel cycle. Expand

Temperature and Activities of a White Shark, Carcharodon carcharias
TLDR
A large (4.6 m) white shark was followed for 3.5 days while its depth, water temperature and muscle temperature were recorded by acoustic telemetry, confirming that a system of large retia mirabilia in the circulatory system function as heat exchangers. Expand
Field demonstration of polarotaxis in the fish Zenarchopterus
TLDR
Oriented responses to linearly polarized light have been quantitatively confirmed in the marine teleost Zenarchopterus studied in underwater field experiments with the aid of SCUBA and continuing work is required to demonstrate the physiological mechanism and ecological significance of these behavioral patterns.
