There’s a shark to catch

Researchers and students from the New College of Florida, Eckerd College and Mote Marine Laboratory spent a week aboard the Florida Institute of Oceanography’s research vessel, the R/V Bellows, catching, tagging and releasing a variety of shark species along the coast of Florida. Funded by the FIO’s state-funded ship time grant, the trip gave students a rare opportunity to participate in every aspect of research, including baiting lines, recording data and even hauling in sharks.
