Data used in linear-regression modelling are available on GitHub (https://github.com/GlobalSharkMovement/GlobalSpatialRisk/tree/master/derived_data). Data used to prepare the maps (shark relative spatial density, longline-fishing effort and shark–longline-fishing overlap and FEI) are available on GitHub (https://github.com/GlobalSharkMovement/GlobalSpatialRisk).
