Satellite tagging highlights the importance of productive Mozambican coastal waters to the ecology and conservation of whale sharks




The whale shark Rhincodon typus is an endangered, highly migratory species with a wide, albeit patchy, distribution through tropical oceans. Ten aerial survey flights along the southern Mozambican coast, conducted between 2004–2008, documented a relatively high density of whal sharks along a ~200 km stretch of the Inhambane Province, with a pronounced hotspot adjacent to Praia do Tofo.
