Shark Tagging

Shark Tagging aboard D/Y Andiamo
January 7 - 14, 2019

During January 7th - 14th, 2019, The International SeaKeepers Society teamed up with the University of Miami’s Shark Research and Conservation Program and the University of New England’s Sulikowski Shark and Fish Research Lab for a historical shark tagging expedition in Tiger Beach, Bahamas while staying aboard DISCOVERY Yacht Andiamo. The team set out to find and identify pregnant tiger sharks to determine where and when they give birth using new technologies to ensure gravid females and the next generations are protected.
