There is not really an easy way to answer that since samples taken from the sharks support 17 different studies. One very interesting result is that tests for stress indicators in the blood show the animals are not getting more stressed out in the lift.

We have stayed pretty close to shore so far and right now we are are off Fernandina Island after starting in Jacksonville. So far it has gone pretty well despite some rough waters. No shark sightings yet but we are not discouraged.

There are likely a descent number right now. We have tracked at least 2 in the past few months which means others are there with them. We expect more to head that way too.

No we do not see other fisherman targeting them. It takes a highly skilled fishing team to safely handle the animals.

The fishing team almost never has down time. They are out there grinding everyday. At night we have a wonderful chef who cooks for the crew, meals provide some of the best relaxation for everyone on board.

We have no evidence that the tags cause any long term damage.

They go into a state sometimes referred to as learned helplessness. Basically they understand that they can get away and so they don't even really try. We take advantage of learned helplessness to get them from the Contender to the OCEARCH quicker too.

Trying to get any sort of experience, even if it's volunteering in an aquarium is a great start. Taking the right classes and pursuing a degree marine biology and making connections at university is extremely important too.

We asked for help raising money for 3 new SPOT tags, but you all blew away our expectations and doubled that to 6 new tags. We’re so excited and cannot thank everyone enough!
