Habitats of Bull / Zambezi Sharks
Pinnacles – Southern Mozambique.Is situated approximately 4km’s offshore between Ponta Malongane and Ponta Mamoli. Limited fishing activity has allowed for healthy fish and shark populations to remain in the region. Some resident Bull sharks seem to remain in the area around the Pinnacles reef during the summer months (Oct – May) or even all year round.
Protea Banks – KZN South Coast. Is situated 8km’s offshore of Shelly Beach on the lower KZN south coast. This reef area is heavily fished by both recreational and commercial fishermen. Divers have noted a marked drop in shark and fish numbers over the past decade.
