Give the Gift of Sharks
Name a Shark and Support Shark Conservation
We are uncovering fascinating information in our shark tagging program. Sharks we have tagged in the San Francisco Bay are moving offshore as far as 900 miles to the north and south, while the smaller sharks stay in the San Francisco Bay. Preliminary evidence from the genetics work suggests that Pacific Sevengill sharks are very different from the Atlantic species. This year several of our large female sharks have been recaptured by recreational fishermen. Following the movements and rate of capture will help us better understand seasonal and short term movements, capture rates, growth and provide fisheries managers the information they need to protect these and other species of sharks.
For $75 you can and adopt your own shark & receive a named certificate and plush shark, including information on your live shark that has been caught, tagged and released back into the ocean.
