Fish Guy Photos SH – Long Island’s White Shark Research
August 7, 2019 @ 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm UTC+0
Sassyfras Cafe at the Sunken Forest, Sailors Haven, Fire Island, NY. Long Island’s coastal waters have an abundance of sharks, all of which we know very little about. In 2015, a small group of researchers were the first to deploy a satellite tag on a juvenile great white shark off Long Island’s south shore. Over the subsequent two summers, a partnership with OCEARCH enabled them to tag an additional 20 white sharks off Montauk. In this presentation, learn about the continued work of the Shark Research and Education Program of the South Fork Natural History Museum.
