New Naut Perspective: Shark Tagging

Jonathan reels in the drumline.

by Jonathan W.

During the shark tagging trip, we caught two nurse sharks, two black tip reef sharks, and a bonnethead, a tiger and and short nose shark. It was really fun. We learned how to measure the sharks, tag the sharks and clip the fins so the University of Miami can do biopsies. They also took blood samples to look at the plasma and white and red blood cells.
