An International consortium of governments, universities and non-governmental organisations is studying great white shark behaviour in the northwest Atlantic ocean to prevent human-shark conflict and protect both species.

“The results of all of these projects are being used to identify areas and conditions during which white sharks are most likely to overlap with recreational water users and will provide science-based information to improve public safety practices,” Megan Winton, chief research scientist for the Atlantic White Shark Conservancy, told The Boston Globe.
