Many research projects are focused on tracking sharks and rays. The objective of is research is data collection about habitat and migration patterns to support conservation of species, by f.i. restricting allowable catches, protect the habitat itself by restricting access of construction and development. Restricting fishing quota for adult individuals is not sufficient: the protection of breeding areas is crucial as well. Several shark and ray species begin their independent lives in mangrove swamps, estuaries, shallow coastal areas, that are unfortunately frequently destroyed for tourist development projects or polluted by sewage.
