      Abstract

      ABSTRACT Records of white sharks (Carcharodon carcharias) sightings or captures from the southern Gulf of California have been poorly documented and anecdotal evidence is limited. Even rarer is the event of a juvenile in subtropical waters. In the present paper, we report the capture of a juvenile female white shark taken in the lower Gulf of California, which represents an important contribution among the connectivity between individuals from California, United States and the Gulf of California, Mexico.

      Transoceanic migration, spatial dynamics, and population linkages of white sharks.

      The large-scale spatial dynamics and population structure of marine top predators are poorly known. We present electronic tag and photographic identification data showing a complex suite of behavioral patterns in white sharks. These include coastal return migrations and the fastest known transoceanic return migration among swimming fauna, which provide direct evidence of a link between widely separated populations in South Africa and Australia. Transoceanic return migration involved a return to the original capture location, dives to depths of 980 meters, and the tolerance of water temperatures as low as 3.4 degrees C. These findings contradict previous ideas that female white sharks do not make transoceanic migrations, and they suggest natal homing behavior.
