Australian shark experts will test cutting-edge technology—including electrical barriers powered by wave energy—following an "unprecedented" series of attacks on swimmers.
An international team of scientists has discovered a new lineage of extinct plankton-feeding sharks, Pseudomegachasma, that lived in warm oceans during the age of the dinosaurs nearly 100 million years ago. The fossil sharks ...
It is a fact – there have been 25 shark attacks in the past eight months in Australia, compared with 23 in all of 2014. However, scientists dispute this nominal increase is cause for a shark cull in northern NSW.
A team of researchers from Monash University, in collaboration with Flinders University has, for the first time, investigated how varied breathing modes of different shark species affect the chances of shark and ray death ...
