Publications from projects funded by the Shark Foundation

The Foundation has been supporting Scientific Research Projects ever since 1997 with emphasis on shark protection. The results of many of these research projects have been published in well-known scientific journals, as conference posters, books or in other forms.
Below you will find selected publications that were made possible through the support of the Foundation.
