Tag and recapture data for three pelagic shark species: blue shark (Prionace glauca), shortfin mako (Isurus xyrinchus ), and porbeagle (Lamna nasus) in the North Atlantic Ocean



Tag and recapture data for three pelagic shark species: blue shark (Prionace glauca), shortfin mako (Isurus xyrinchus ), and porbeagle (Lamna nasus) in the North Atlantic Ocean



International Commission for the Conservation of Atlantic Tunas Collective Volume of Scientific Papers 54: 1231-1260



Tagging and recapture (T/R) information from the National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS) Cooperative Shark Tagging Program (CSTP) covering the period from 1962 through 2000 are summarized for the blue shark (Prionace glauca), shortfin mako (Isurus oxyrinchus), and porbeagle (Lamna nasus). The extent of the tagging effort, areas of release and recapture, sources of tags and recaptures, capture methods, and movements of tagged sharks are reported by species. Summary information includes number of males and females tagged and recaptured, overall recapture rate, maximum observed speed, distance traveled, and time at liberty. In order to examine regional trends in size and maturation categories, the North Atlantic Ocean is divided into geographical areas. General migration patterns and stock identity by species are summarized and discussed.
