Stomach content analysis of the blacktip shark from the coastal waters of Florida from 2008 to 2010 (NCEI Accession 0166766)

browse graphicPreview graphic
This Archive Information Package (AIP) contains basic biological information and specific (by stomach and prey item) diet information for blacktip sharks. Data were collected by the NMFS Southeast Fisheries Science Center; Panama City, FL Laboratory, through the observer programs, and other fishery independent surveys in the coastal waters of Florida. Data are in comma separated value (CSV) format and include length, sex, number of prey items, and stomach content analysis. Stomach contents and catch data of early life stages of blacktip sharks (Carcharhinus limbatus) were examined to test for overlap in resource use.

Purpose To investigate the foraging ecology of early life stages of blacktip sharks in the coastal waters of Florida, to determine levels of resource overlap. Here, we (1) describe and quantify the diet of each shark species-life stage, (2) calculate diet overlap for shark species-life stage combinations, (3) calculate habitat overlap for shark species-life stage combinations using fishery-independent catch data, (4) examine prey size-predator size relationships for shark species.
