Tiger Shark Research

A tagged tiger shark after release 

  The Holland Lab also conducts field research away from Coconut Island. The Tiger Shark Research Program looks at the movement patterns and population dynamics of this large predator off the southern shore of Oahu. Acoustic telemetry is used to track their movements and ultrasonic listening stations monitor the return of tagged sharks to the waters where they were initially caught, tagged and released.
