Although both species showed partial site fidelity in the sense that they were most likely to be found near the point of original capture, both species were also distributed throughout the ten by 30 km atoll. A monitor at Lighthouse Reef, 30 kilometers from Glover's Reef, saw One Caribbean reef shark swimming in deep open water, just off the coast of Glover's Reef. The mean minimum linear dispersal was 10. 5 kilometers for Caribbean reef sharks and 7. 7 kilometers for nurse sharks, with some people traveling more than the ten kilometers width of the marine reserve's no-take "conservation zone" of the no-take "conservation zone. Despite the fact that most sharks were tagged within the protected zone, people were found outside of GRMR's conservation zone on average 48 days out of the 150 days of observations. However, 4 of 7 nurse sharks tagged near the center of the conservation zone were never seen outside of this region of the reserve.
