Whale sharks off the Pacific coast of Mexico

This has been my toughest one ever: Oceanic adults, coastal juveniles: tracking the habitat use of whale sharks off the Pacific coast of Mexico. Deni showed me the raw tracks back in 2010 at the Sharks International conference in Cairns and ever since then I have been working on this (on and off) with a great group of people. Very happy to see this finally published!

From one of the reviewers: This article is one of the first attempts to elucidate ontogenetic shifts in habitat use and behavior of whale sharks, a long overdue exercise due mainly to the lack of individuals other than immature males at most coastal aggregation sites.

And here‘s the author interview with Deni.
