Sequeira Lab team members are excited to have recently returned from a second (very successful!) shark tagging trip to Shark Bay.
Did you know that despite their size, whale sharks are at great risk from the shipping industry? Our Sequeira Lab leader, Dr. Ana Sequeira, contributed to a recently published paper entitled "Global collision-risk hotspots of marine traffic and the world’s largest fish, the whale shark" ...
The ocean is full of interesting creatures! And the ocean sunfish is just about one of the most interesting ones, as Dr Ana Sequeira had the pleasure to learn while reviewing the recent book: "The Ocean Sunfishes: Evolution, Biology, and Conservation".
We have returned from our first tiger shark tagging trip to Shark Bay, as part of our Gathaagudu Animal Tracking (GAT) Project.

The SequeiraLab is kicking off the New Year with some exciting news! At the end of 2021 Lucy Arrowsmith and Hannah Calich presented their PhD completion seminars at the UWA Indian Ocean Marine Research Centre and are now preparing their thesis submission.
Both Sequeira Lab's masters students Jessica Pearce and Adrianne Hortle have recently submitted their final theses! This marks the final step in the completion of their respective master's degrees.
The SequeiraLab is happy to announce that the research paper 'Water temperature is a key driver of horizontal and vertical movements of an ocean giant, the whale shark (Rhincondon typus)' led by Lucy Arrowsmith and co-authored by Ana Sequeira, Charitha Pattiaratchi and Mark Meekan, has just been published in the journal Marine Ecology Progress Series!
Oliver has joined the Sequeira Lab from the Harry Butler Institute, Murdoch University, where he has recently submitted his PhD thesis for examination. Oliver specialises in the tagging and tracking of marine megafauna, particularly large sharks. His recent work involved the collection and analysis of high-resolution bio-logging data from the movements of white sharks across the world.
We work hard at the SequeiraLab. But we also play hard! 🙂
