The SeaMonitor project aims at delivering Europe's largest telemetric marine array to produce spatial models supporting the conservation of a wide range of marine species. Within these broader project aims, the team from Queen's University Belfast are responsible for the work packages focussed on critically endangered flapper skate (also known as common skate) and the globally endangered basking shark. Overall, our study aims to assess the regional connectivity (Ireland, Northern Ireland, western Scotland) and spatial ecology of these species using satellite and acoustic telemetry combined with genetics techniques, to provide evidence based management recommendations for government conservation efforts.
