Starting with the Pacific, SharkSearch is creating a separate page for each Country and Territory that contains photographs of sharks and rays taken by divers in each country, and the current checklist of sharks and rays for that country. The aim is to produce up to four country checklists per year.


  • In 2017, we published our first species list and overview report for the Solomon Islands

  • In 2018, we began work on species lists and overview reports for Fiji, French Polynesia, Niue and Tuvalu, and the Federated States of Micronesia

  • In 2019, we began our first species lists and overviews in the Indian Ocean and South-east Asia
