Apex Predators Program Age and Growth Data

Metadata Updated: February 27, 2019

Apex Predators Program staff have collected vertebral centra from sportfishing tournaments, cruises, commercial fishermen and strandings in the Northeast US since the 1960's. This offers a unique opportunity to sample shark species and to gather valuable life history information. Lengths, sexes, and biological samples are collected for use in age and growth.
