Species Distribution: Tiger Shark - Hawaii

Metadata Updated: November 12, 2020

This dataset contains a collection of known point locations of tiger sharks identified via automated satellite tracking of tagged organisms. This can be useful for assessing species abundance, population structure, habitat use, and behavior. This collection is aggregated from multiple tagged organisms and survey periods. Each data point contains attributes for further information about the time and source of the observation. This dataset was compiled by the Pacific Islands Ocean Observing System (PacIOOS) and may be updated in the future if additional data sources are acquired.

University of Hawaii's Hawaii Institute of Marine Biology (HIMB) desploys satellite tags on tiger sharks to track their movements within the Main Hawaiian Islands as well as the Papahanaumokuakea Marine National Monument (Northwestern Hawaiian Islands). Top predators play an important role in ecosystems by influencing prey behavior and shaping communities through trophic cascades.
