Unique shark tagging expedition to the Saba Bank
In October 2016, the Dutch Caribbean Nature Alliance (DCNA) organized a unique shark tagging expedition to the Saba Bank. Little is currently known about the status of shark populations in Dutch Caribbean waters and shark tagging studies are a pivotal first step in determining which sharks are present, where they can be found and most importantly to provide insights into their range state and migration patterns. This information will be used to determine how best to manage and protect these important apex predators.
