MetadataShow full item record
Scientists spotted endangered and rarely seen "ninja" sharks off Malapascua Island in Cebu. Marine scientists Thomas Grothues, an associate research professor from Rutgers University in the United States, and Simon Oliver from the University of Chester in the United Kingdom, documented sightings of endangered pelagic thresher sharks, a species commonly found in the tropical and subtropical waters of the Indian and Pacific Ocean. In their month-long observation, Grothues and Oliver spent most of their time aboard a motor yacht off Malapascua Island, where residents have built a tourist trade around thresher sharks.
