Shark Search Indo-Pacific is committed to making sure that knowledge is shared and freely available. Shark Search research findings and data will be published in scientific journals to ensure that they become part of the permanent scientific record. However, Shark Search information and publications will also be made Open Access wherever possible to ensure that people can access these papers and datasets.
