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.
“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.
