April 17th, 2010..a mixed day of sharks and good data.

Saturday, April 17, 2010: It was nice to wake up in The Keys instead of having to drive that 2-hour stretch from home.  That’s probably all that was good about the day, just kidding we did get some sharks, but I think we were all a little spoiled (rightfully!) from Friday.  However, we all had […]

Caroline the Hammerhead, added to the family of sat tag sharks!

“Thank God it’s Friday,” is what most of us were thinking as we set out on April 16th.  With South Broward High School, all of us from the shark program, and a few special visitors, the energy on the boat was ridiculously high!  Curt’s wife Kelli, along with several other members of their family, including […]

Amazing day of shark tagging 3/14/10

3/14/10 We were wary about how the conditions would be due to those of the day prior.  Nonetheless, I made my way down with 11 students from Palmer Trinity School to meet Dr. Neil Hammerschlag, Joe Romeiro from 333 Productions, and the rest of the shark team interns.  We were also accompanied by another VIP […]
