10 Dec Habitat Use and Migrations of Shortfin Mako in the Atlantic Using Satellite Telemetry
Read the update from ICCAT on habitat use and migrations of shortfin Mako in the Atlantic. Two separate studies were undertaken—a study on stock boundaries, movement patterns, and habitat and one on post-release mortality of discarded specimens. Two models of Wildlife Computers tags were used in the study—MiniPATs, and sPATs. Out of 34 tags deployed, 32 reported data with over 1260 tracking days recorded. There is a lot of interesting data on vertical and horizontal habitat that we will but in the meantime, you can read the update.
