The GEMM Lab is collaborating with colleagues in New Zealand (NIWA) and Australia (University of Tasmania) to generate an improved understanding of the habitat use patterns of great white sharks, New Zealand sea lions, and southern elephant seals in New Zealand waters. A variety of telemetry devices, including satellite, GPS, TDR and acoustic tags, have been deployed on these species over 4 years. These tracking datasets have produced novel data that describe the distribution patterns of these populations for the first time. Advanced modeling techniques will now be applied to these datasets to assess the environmental drivers of habitat use patterns, assess species vulnerability to fisheries threats and climate change, and produce predictive species distribution maps.
