The Hawai'i Community Tagging Program is a collaborative research program focused on the use of advanced telemetry technologies to elucidate shark movement behavior and habitat requirements. Our research objectives are geared towards filling data gaps identified by regional fishery management organizations as critical for implementation of effective conservation strategies for shark populations impacted by commercial fisheries. This work depends on the efforts and local ecological knowledge of the fishing community to deploy tags, collect data and pursue practical, sustainable solutions to mortality mitigation.
