      Shark Spotting: The Science of Tracking the Ocean's Largest Predators

      Sharks capture the public’s attention like no other species, as demonstrated by the popularity of Discovery Channel’s “Shark Week” and the frequency with which stories of sharks “lurking” in local waters grab headlines. However, despite the great public interest in sharks and the important role they play in marine ecosystems, these animals remain misunderstood and challenging to study. Learn how new research is shedding light on the biology and ecology of sharks and how scientists are using cutting edge technologies to view the hidden lives of sharks and aid in the conservation and management of these iconic predators.

      Presented by Dr. Aaron Carlisle, Assistant Professor of Fisheries Ecology at the School of Marine Science and Policy, University of Delaware.

      Online program presented by the Lewes Public Library.
