Satellite tracked mako sharks in North Atlantic

Diving behaviour and movements of satellite tracked short fin mako
sharks (Isurus oxyrinchus) in the North Atlantic: preliminary results

Mucientes et al. 2011


The shortfin mako shark (Isurus oxyrinchus) is a highly migratory, pelagic
species with circum-global distribution in tropical and temperate seas. This shark is
common in Atlantic Ocean where it is mainly caught by longliners targeting swordfish
(Xiphias gladius). Despite the high prevalence, economic importance, and vulnerability of
this species, little is known about its population dynamics and habitat-use.
