Abstract

Blacktip reef sharks Carcharhinus melanopterus were caught and photographed by local people on 6 March 2019 during a flash flood in Sentani, Jayapura district, Papua province, Indonesia. The presence of C. melanopterus in Sentani represents the first inland record (c. 20 km) for this species in Indonesia. All individuals found were small-sized sharks (c. 500-600 mm), suggesting very young juveniles. We presume their occurence in Sentani a few hours after a flash flood is in response to seasonal freshwater inflow to estuarine environment.
