Environmental Changes Impact Shark Behavior: Local Impacts, Causes and Customized Unmanned Systems Used in Solutions

HAB’s, or harmful algal blooms, and how they have a negative and toxic impact on the local marine environment as well as humans. These environmental and habitat changes directly impact the marine apex predators, sharks. These changes aren’t limited to a single or one particular species, but multiple species.
