During this expedition, the team will continue to advance its groundbreaking research on juvenile white sharks in the waters off Long Island’s south shore. Since 2015, this research team became the first to satellite tag young-of-the-year (YOY) white sharks in the Atlantic, followed by a successful collaboration with OCEARCH in 2016 and 2017. Last year, the team published their first scientific study confirming that the New York Bight is a summer nursery area for white sharks (https://www.nature.com/articles/s41598-018-29180-5).
