Does Anyone Recognise this Shark?

This season is definitely being unusual in terms of the number of 'new' sharks we are finding and the weekend turned up another new shark but with what looks like a tag tether attached to its left flank.

This juvenile male shark was found swimming of North West Mahe in an area with several other sharks when the tag attachment was noted....

As this was a new shark to Seychelles the chances are that this shark had been tagged in one of the other Indian ocean regional monitoring programmes...

If any of the monitoring groups recognise this shark please contact us so we can share the information with you!
