Shark tagging with the UM Global Academy!

By James  Komisarjevsky, RJD intern

Last Saturday, the RJD team took the UMiami Global Academy out for a fun filled day of shark tagging. The weather was beautiful, the sun was shining and everyone’s hopes were high for a day filled with lots of sharks. The team took the UM Global Academy out to a reef site in deep waters (about 150ft deep). It was not a spot for the weak stomach as swells had the boat rocking. The first ten drumlines were set out, and except for some of the people who were a little seasick, everyone’s hopes were high.
