Declines in shark populations worldwide are of particular concern to fishery managers and conservation biologists. Molecular-based technologies provide an efficient means to collect basic life-history information and estimates of dispersal that are critical to management. A novel method for obtaining high quality mtDNA from shark jaws and teeth for shark population genetic studies is described.
