Fifty listening stations will be deployed along the west coast of Reunion Island to track tiger shark and bullshark that will be tagged during the CHARC (Connaissances de l’écologie et de l’HAbitat de deux espèces de Requins Côtiers sur la côte Ouest de la Réunion) program. The aim of this program is to characterize the microhabitats of these species and their feeding behaviours by tagging 40 individuals of each species. This area is also a zone where whales are watched during winter.
