About Linda

The Story Behind the Name: Linda was one of the 16 sharks tagged on the Bahamas Research Expedition in February 2011 with Jim Abernethy’s Scuba Adventures, Inc. As such, one of the crewmembers aboard was given the opportunity to name a shark after someone special.

Mike Black chose to name this shark after his mother Linda. Working aboard a Tiger Shark diving ecotourism boat is not exactly the most common of career choices. Mike is eternally grateful to have the support of his loving mother.
