Abstract:

This user-friendly guide will help in the identification of sharks found in Kakadu National Park rivers (the Alligator Rivers region).  It includes photos and details of the threatened Glyphis species (Northern River Shark and Speartooth Shark) and the non-threatened Bull Shark.  It also provides information on the conservation status and protected status of the river sharks species, along with advice on safe handling and release.

The guide will be of interest to recreational fishers, Indigenous fishers, commercial fishers (outside of Kakadu National Park) and Park users.
