“Sur les traces du requin pèlerin” (Basking shark behaviour)

In June 2009, I joined the French research team APECS and Sandra Bessudo (Malpelo Fundation) in a field trip in Britany (France) to tag basking sharks. The recent studies on basking shark’s movements have demonstrated different behavioural patterns of movements from local movements (in Britain waters) to transoceanic migration (Atlantic) and Transequatorial migration (Atlantic). But what are our French basking sharks doing? Is there an exchange between French and English populations? The PAT tag will answer these questions…RTEmagicC_RequinPelerinAileron.jpg
