Latest version published by CSIRO Oceans and Atmosphere on Dec 23, 2019 CSIRO Oceans and Atmosphere

Five Great hammerheads and seven Scalloped hammerheads were tracked at Exmouth Gulf and the Great Barrier Reef in 2016 to 2018. The hammerheads were tagged with Wildlife Computers miniPAT archival tags and SPOT6 tags.

Project Data

Hammerhead sharks are the focus of conservation management through recent listing on Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora (CITES) and Convention on the Conservation of Migratory Species (CMS). The clear data gap for Department of the Environment and Energy (DoEE) and Great Barrier Reef Marine Park Authority (GBRMPA) is connectivity of populations across national and international jurisdictions. This project applies genetic and satellite telemetry to examine the movement and connectivity of hammerhead sharks. This will help determine use of Australian Marine Parks (AMPs) and the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park (GBRMP), and define Biologically Important Areas (BIAs) where possible. These data will be assimilated with current research to provide a more comprehensive understanding of the status of hammerhead shark populations to inform species listing and assist management and conservation policies at national and international levels.
