Meet your team, introduction to the research
Daily activity includes: Catching/tracking sharks: The team members on the boat will set out long lines to catch sharks. In the evening, they'll return to implant transmitters in and release any sharks caught and bring in the fishing equipment
Watching underwater video: the team will set up BRUVs (baited remote underwater video cameras) at various spots in shallow water. From the field station, you'll analyze the video footage to see what sharks and other marine animals are up to.
Processing fin samples: Also at the field station, team members will help organize and process the tissue samples taken from sharks by fishermen.
