About Fi

The Story Behind the Name: This lovely lady was named Fi in thanks of Fiona Graham, one of the dedicated SRC interns. She has been a great contributing member, beginning this past year, and continuing beyond her graduation in May 2010. Fiona may not be the loudest member onboard, but she is the fiercest with pulling in lines and securing the sharks. We look forward to seeing where her career in marine science leads.

Satellite Tagging: “Fi” was carefully tagged with the latest in satellite tag technology providing us with one of the first opportunities to follow the long term movements of these threatened species. Within the first week, she proved to be a strong and curious swimmer. Please keep checking back frequently to follow Fi’s movements, which will be updated every few days as her satellite tag continues to send us real-time tracking data.
