Rays and sharks are now our fellows

We are very excited to announce that we now see rays and sharks as marine megavertebrates and include them as target species of the OBIS-SEAMAP database and mapping tools.

All species of rays and sharks under the taxonomic class Chondrichthyes are considered to be our target species. For example, you can view whale shark observations at http://seamap.env.duke.edu/species/159857

Data submission and sharing for rays and sharks are very welcome. Please contact us.
