GAITAN-ESPITIA, Juan  and  LOPEZ-PENA, Arístides. Presence of young blacktip sharks Carcharhinus limbatus (Carcharhiniformes: Carcharhinidae) in the north area of the Tayrona ecoregion, Colombian Caribbean. Lat. Am. J. Aquat. Res. [online]. 2008, vol.36, n.1, pp.115-119. ISSN 0718-560X.

The presence of two young Carcharhinus limbatus (Valenciennes, 1839) is documented. The individuals were collected by artisanal fishers in the area around the Don Diego River mouth (11°18'N-73°43'W) at the north of the Tayrona National Natural Park influence zone in the Colombian Caribbean. This is the first record of this species in the area. The specimens examined are described herein.
