FLOWRIDER POPS INTO IRISH WATERS FOR A FEED!
Flowrider, a very large male basking shark we put a satellite tag onto in Manx waters last August 7th continues to delight the us by letting us know where he is. He went to Moroccan waters for the winter, dropped past the French coast and had a weeks feeding on the surface near La Rochelle, popped his head up near Brest, further up the French coast and now he has been feeding for 3 days off the Irish coast just offshore of Waterford. This gives us GREAT information about the annual migratory patterns of basking sharks. Let’s hope we hear more from Flowrider and from the other 2 basking sharks, Celtic Scuff and DONG Megalodon, who we tagged at the same time.
