Program Presented by Chris Paparo of Fish Guy Photos, who is the Southampton Marine Science Center Manager at Stony Brook University’s School of Marine and Atmospheric Sciences at its Southampton campus.
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 SOFO’s Shark Research and Education Program, which launched in 2018.
