About Rho

The Story Behind the Name: Rho Rho Rho is the Marine and Atmospheric Honor Society at the University of Miami. After several amazing trips with SRC we were given the opportunity to name our very own shark. This enthusiastic group of young marine scientists is working to encourage stewardship for our beautiful oceans. We are very excited to follow our Tiger Shark, Rho, and use her to spread the word of ocean conservation.
