“I have identified over 300 sharks, 150 of which were re-sighted one time or more. Of these 150 sharks, 33% were observed exclusively inshore, 33% exclusive island visitation and 33% animals observed at both locations.

I was thinking along the lines of a place mark for each time an animal is sighted (using GPS coordinates). Then for each progressive sighting another place mark, so as the timeline runs it will in effect ping if that animal was present on that day. When all animals are inputted I am guessing one would expect to see some sort of seasonal pulse of movement into the different areas.”
