  This publication describes the scientific principles and techniques used for resource management of elasmobranch fisheries with emphasis on the particular context of elasmobranchs. The management characteristics of these fishes are described – their common bycatch character and their biological constraints on productivity (low growth rate, late maturity and low fecundity) Klimley, A ().Diel movements of scalloped hammerhead sharks, Sphyrna lewini Griffith and Smith, to and from a seamount in the Gulf of California.

The combined age at length data for both sexes were applied to a von Bertalanffy growth model producing parameter estimates of L∞ = cm TL, K, t0 = − yr. Lengths at age for males The silky shark, Carcharhinus falciformis, and scalloped hammerhead, Sphyrna lewini, represent >80% of the shark by-catch of the winter swordfish/tuna longline fishery of the northwestern Gulf of Mexico.

This catch represents a potential supplemental fishery, yet little is known of the life histories of the two species. This report relates reproductive biology data to age and growth estimates   Branstetter S, McEachran JD.

Some of this variation may stem from the different methods used to estimate growth (e.g. vertebral ring counts versus mark-recapture experiments) [15], compounded by small sample sizes and lack of validation in some studies [16].

Final Report, NOAA/NMFS/MARFIN Project NA17FF–   The Bull shark (Carcharhinus leucas), or Zambezi shark, is a species of shark of the genus Carcharhinus. The shark grows to a maximum length of feet ( metres), but is usually feet ( metres) long. It is found in tropical and subtropical coastal waters worldwide, as well as river systems and freshwater lakes.
