Social Network Analysis Reveals the Subtle Impacts of Tourist Provisioning on the Social Behavior of a Generalist Marine Apex Predator
Shark dive ecotourism is a lucrative industry in many regions around the globe. In some cases, sharks are provisioned using bait, prompting increased research on how baited dives influence sharkExpand


Comparing behavioural syndromes across time and ecological conditions in a free-ranging predator
It is argued in this case that the correlation of two behavioural traits is adaptive, since this could signify that they are only favoured under certain ecological conditions. Expand
Effects of reward magnitude and training frequency on the learning rates and memory retention of the Port Jackson shark Heterodontus portusjacksoni
A reduction in reinforcement frequency during tourism-related feeding operations is likely to be more effective in reducing the risk of sharks making associations with food than limiting the amount of food provided. Expand
Social learning in solitary juvenile sharks
Social learning can be a shortcut for acquiring locally adaptive information. Animals that live in social groups have better access to social information, but gregarious and nonsocial species areExpand
The effects of wildlife tourism provisioning on non-target species
It is suggested that appropriate management comprises an ecosystem-approach inclusive of non-target species, demonstrating the complexity of understanding the effects of wildlife tourism on non- target species. Expand

Acoustic accelerometry reveals diel activity patterns in premigratory Port Jackson sharks
It is shown that sex, time of day, and sex‐specific seasonal behavior all influenced activity levels and the timing of wild shark departures for migration in the late breeding season corresponded with elevated diel activity at night within the captive individuals, suggesting a form of migratory restlessness in captivity.

Regulating whale watching: A common agency analysis
Abstract Whale watching has boomed as a global tourist industry over the last three decades, bringing with it considerable economic gains to the local communities in which it operates, many of whichExpand
The importance of sample size in marine megafauna tagging studies.
This work reviewed the types of information that have been obtained in previously published studies using different sample sizes, considered sample sizes from one to more than 100 individuals and synthesized empirical findings, detailing the information that can be gathered with increasing sample sizes.
