Atlantic Sharpnose Shark

Relative abundance anaylysis for Atlantic sharpnose shark, blacknose shark, and blacktip shark. Relative abundance is expressed in catch per unit effort (CPUE). CPUE by 15-minute longitude by latitude blocks are summarized from 1,741 bottom longline sets taken from 2000 to 2009 as part of bottom longline surveys conducted by National Marine Fisheries Service. Catch per unit effort (CPUE) is the number of fish caught per 100-hook hour.
