Find shark research and data

More than 100 species of sharks live in Queensland waterways. Most shark species do not pose a risk to people, but those that do are on our target shark species list.

We keep a record of all animals captured in nets, drumlines and catch alert drumlines.

We’re investing in research to learn more about the behaviour and species of sharks that live in Queensland waterways. Our research also investigates human behaviour which may impact shark behaviour, or increase or decrease the risk of human and shark interactions.
