Shark Details

This was a very large school of mixed sex, mixed aged sharks. We put 3 satellite tags on and took 12 DNA samples and full basking shark passports. Many, many thanks to Brian Maddrell and Tom Felce for letting us know that the basking sharks were here!

Environment Details

Lots of jellyfish but not much obvious plankton. The sharks obviously disagreed!
