Despite windy weather, we had an amazing three weeks working on the Florida Keys Shark Ecosystem Project with the University of Miami's Shark Research and Conservation Program! The student participants and the interns and staff from UMSRC were fantastic, and made the most of our data collection opportunities in Dry Tortugas National Park and the Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary, sampling 78 sharks across more than 10 species. We saw some amazing sharks this week, including this blacktip which was fitted with a satellite tag before release. We can't wait for future work on this project!
