( This is an excerpt from the content )
Despite their large body size, wide distribution, apex predator role and near-threatened IUCN status, little is known about the ecology and habitat use of tiger sharks (Galeocerdo cuvier, Peron & Lesueur, 1822) (Meyer et al. 2010, Simpfendorfer 2009). A recent study showed complex behaviour within and between reefs in the Coral Sea, and pointed out the high proportion of sub-adults in remote but large reefs (Werry et al. 2014). However, no information has been collected in remote small atolls yet.
