Another long distance tope

| March 31, 2012

More than 2000kms away from where she was tagged during Sharkatag 2010 – tope number 3044 was recaptured off the coast of Portugal.

As we reported recently, tope have now joined common skate and porbeagle in having the highest levels of protection in Scottish waters; returns like this show it is time for the EU to step up to the mark and extend similar protection for them in all European waters.

Thanks to the guys down at the Instituto de Investigação das Pescas e do Mar (IPIMAR) – the governmental research organization in Portugal for the update.
