Formatted abstract
The Zebra Shark (Stegostoma fasciatum) is a broadly distributed continental and insular shelf species of the Indo-West Pacific. It is usually found within a narrow band of shallow coral reef habitat and soft bottom that is heavily fished throughout all of its range except Australia. It is taken in inshore fisheries (demersal trawls, floating and fixed bottom gillnets and baited hooks) and regularly seen in fish markets in Indonesia, Thailand, Philippines, Pakistan, India, Taiwan, and elsewhere. There are limited data on population declines in these areas, with the exception of the Gulf of Thailand, but the species is susceptible to capture in a wide range of fisheries, has a narrow habitat range with potential limited dispersal, shows strong site fidelity and forms aggregations which facilitate the rapid removal of individuals.
