Abstract: The primary objectives of this project were to assess the importance of Tampa Bay and Charlotte Harbor/Pine Island Sound as shark nursery grounds; survey these estuaries for bycatch of small sharks, teleosts, and other vertebrates in inshore fisheries; assess the potential impact of shark bycatch mortality in these nursery grounds; and conduct basic biological studies of shark distribution, migration, feeding, and reproduction in these inshore areas. To accomplish these objectives, bycatch surveys were conducted and a tagging program took place.
