The fishery is stable with the population likely to be above the biomass required to provide the maximum sustainable yield. Find out how a whale shark feeds its colossal 10-ton appetite. It secrets strong acids and enzymes (gastric acids and pepsinogen), which helps to digest what is eaten and turns food into liquid mush. It is found on the coastal areas of all oceans. We work with commercial longline fishermen off the coast of Nova Scotia to conduct experiments with special materials placed near hooks to repel sharks.

They home in on victims using electrosensors that detect tiny charges given off by the prey’s muscles. Both studies were limited by small sample sizes of predominantly juvenile sharks. Identification problems with the Whitefin Hammerhead are only possible in the latter's area of distribution which is limited to the Ivory Coast. The shark is a noted predator that hunts for prey. They are egg-laying and most species form socially monogamous pairs.
