Sandbar shark Carcharhinus plumbeus

Spatial and temporal dynamics of Western Australia’s commercially important sharks

Fisheries Research Report No. 282

This is the final report for FRDC Project No. 2010 / 003 which involved acoustically tagging large numbers of commercially important sharks to provide information on spatial and temporal dynamics. I coordinated an Ecosystem Based Fisheries Management risk assessment for dusky shark, Carcharhinus obscurus, and sandbar shark, Carcharhinus plumbeus, incorporating updated information on the movement and migratory patterns of these species.
