Join us this Monday, Dec 18th at 12 PM to support SRC MS candidate, Intern Coordinator, and Satellite Tag Coordinator @ernelson114 at the defense of her MS thesis! During her time with our lab, Emily has been using satellite tag data and morphology measurements to understand how varying tiger shark body types are related to the distances and speeds that individual sharks move- all of her hard work culminates in her thesis “Functional Morphology and Individual Variation on Movement Performance of an Apex Predator, the Tiger Shark”. Come out to @umiamirsmas, room MSC 123 on Monday to support Emily and learn about her fascinating research! Great photos by Frank Gibson ( @synima) and Cat Schultz, footage courtesy of @discoverychannel. ________________________ #shark #sharks #fish #fishing #miami #florida #science #sharkresearch #research #ocean #saltlife #water #conservation #nature #wildlife #nofilter #ig #instagood #instalike #instalove #photooftheday #picoftheday #video #videooftheday #tiger #move #shape #study #master #ff

Can you spot the Scalloped Hammerhead Shark in this photo? 👀🔨! Just like humans, shark behavior varies not only by species but also by each individual shark. Most sharks are very wary of human presence and take a more cautious approach to interacting with humans and even other sharks. It’s actually very hard to get close to a shark unless you remain very calm, slow, and seemingly uninterested in them. This is not how the media likes to portray sharks because fear sells. In my more rare observations @OneOceanDiving, Hammerheads tend to be one of the shyest species we see. On this particular day, we had a more confident Hammerhead that @camgrantphotography was able to get some photos of! This is as close as I could get to film the shark before it would slip away into the deep blue. @waterinspired 💙

Eeeeeeeek! SO beyond excited to be assisting at the annual responsible recreational angling Bronzie Fest competition tomorrow - one of my faaaavvvourite events of the year! Look forward to working with and tagging one of the prettiest shark species - big, beautiful bronzies 😍. . Making this year's event even more exciting is that I FINALLY get to work with my lab superstar sharkey sister Michaela out of the genetics lab and in the field! 👩‍🔬. . Look out for the South African Shark Conservancy @sharkconservancy team's updates and photos as we combine science, conservation and responsible angling with >100 of South Africa's finest and most talented recreational anglers 🎣🦈

Updates from the Field : “ #Tikehau has been incredible! Although it is just day 2, we were lucky enough to see many of these insanely beautiful little blacktip reef sharks. Oftentimes in just inches of water, these sharks become easy to spot as their fin pierces the surface.” Follow @thesharkdoctor for more on this incredible journey

A Seal ends up on top of shark's nose It was the snap judgment that cost this great white shark its lunch… The 12ft-long beast broke out of the water hoping to snap up the seal. But instead of clamping its huge jaws around the stunned creature, it was off target and just nudged it with its nose. The seal was momentarily balanced on the tip of the shark's nose before being knocked to safety back in the water. The amazing scene was captured by South African wildlife photographer Chris Fallows at False Bay near Seal Island, which is home to an estimated 64,000 seals and a group of great white sharks who hunt them. He’s clearly good at getting awesome pictures. A great white shark munches its way through 11 tons of food a year. It can smell a seal colony from up to two miles away. Via: @discoverocean

Awesome 🎶 & 🦈 in this #underwatervideo - la Vallée Blanche Tahiti - the famous place to see #tigersharks - yes, plural! I make a point to #dive here every year! During this dive, we saw three... the largest being 4.5m! My friend Nico has tagged ~55 of them over the years & w/ photo ID to start understanding where they go, when, & hopefully why... the females stay close by, but they’ve tagged very few males (<5?) and are not sure their movements yet.

The eye of a gorgeous blacknose shark caught by researchers with @field_school. The small dots you can see are jelly filled pores called the ampullae of Lorenzini. They are part of a subcutaneous sensory network that detects electric fields in the water to help sharks navigate and locate prey. Far from the mindless killing machines we’ve been taught to see them as, sharks are fascinating, complex animals and we have so much to learn from them. @5400k got this shot as researchers collected blood and morphometric data before tagging and releasing the shark. #sharkresearch #blacknoseshark #shark #ampullaeoflorenzini #biscaynebay #nature #wildlife #ocean #miami #florida

Our urban shark team had another successful day of tagging in downtown Miami! Today we tagged, sampled, and released three juvenile nurse sharks and one gorgeous female blacktip. By studying sharks in human-impacted areas, like downtown Miami, we hope to learn how urbanization affects the behavior, movement, health, and physiology of these predators! To learn more about our Urban Shark project, check out the link in our bio.

Aggregating, or grouping behavior, is seen across several shark orders, including Carcharhiniformes, Heterodontiformes, Squatiniformes, and Hexanchiformes(Mourier et al. 2011). There can be many factors that could cause certain species to come together. Among these are cooperative hunting(Ebert 1991), mating(Sims et al. 2000), communication/passing along social information(Klimley & Nelson 1981), and protection from predators or unwanted attention from the opposite sex(Economakis & Lobel 1998, Wearmouth & Sims 2008). Although sharks may be found to aggregate together, it is still difficult to track individuals well enough that social interactions and behaviors can be well documented. This is why we are conducting a population study on the sharks here on the North Shore of O'ahu, to observe these individual sharks and their behavior, whether they aggregate for mating, communication, cooperative feeding, or a combination of reasons. So far we have found that although the sharks found at our sites are typically male, female Galapagos sharks are much more abundant in the summer months and their bodies are more swollen and sport new scars indicative of mating. 💞 There is still so much to learn about these animals but they are disappearing an an unsustainably high rate due to #sharkfinsoup #sharkcull and #longlining. Help us save these sharks and our seas by spreading awareness, knowing where your seafood comes from, and being politically involved. Your influence is larger than you realize! #bethedifference Post by @shelle_belle_ Photo by @juansharks

Important #sharkscience from @fsumarinelab Dr Dean Grubbs and co-authors about what’s really happening with #cownose rays. Their populations are not exploding ....***REPOST from @fsumarinelab using @RepostRegramApp - These cownose rays (Rhinoptera bonasus) have been known to migrate in massive schools in the Atlantic and Gulf of Mexico. But did you know they take years to reproduce? Research shows they need about eight years to mature, after which, females may only give birth to a single pup a year. Assertions that a rapid increase in ray populations are to blame for a decline in commercial bivalves are scientifically inaccurate. . . . #fsucml #floridastateuniversity #marineresearch #fishing #marineconservation #saveourseas #elasmobrach #cownoseray #rays #floridaseagrant #noaafisheries #savethebayeataray #sharkfishing #marinescience #sharkresearch #sharkscience #sharktagging #marinebiology #guyharvey #drdeangrubbs

Say aloha to Shinee, the newest addition to our #SharkID program adopted by @gregscialom and named by his son Zachary! Mahalo for your support Greg, we hope Shinee decides to make an appearance when you visit us this summer! 🤙🏽🦈Shinee is a subadult galapagos shark that is relatively new to our aggregation site, and is most easily identified by the two small consecutive notches on her right pectoral fin. If you are interested in adopting a shark of your own check out our online store at freedivewithsharks.com, or come out with us on a tour! If you get footage or photos of an individual with distinguishing features we haven't ID'd yet you get to name the shark!

Aloha kakahiaka e ‘ohana manō 🤙🏾🦈 ‘ōlelo noeau (proverb) of the day : He niuhi ‘ai holopapa o ka moku - “The tiger shark that devours all the land”. This proverb has a deeper and more symbolic meaning and actually is meant to be about a powerful warrior that is so good in battle that he or she is unstoppable. Equating a person to a tiger shark in Hawaiian culture was a compliment as these creatures were held in the highest respect as kinolau form of the god Kanaloa, but also as an ‘aumākua, or deceased ancestor whose soul transcended into the tiger shark.

*for my whale shark loving friends* 💙😇 ・・・ Awesome Shark fact thanks to our friend Dr @simonjpierce : Every summer, whale sharks swim to Mexico to gorge themselves on tuna spawn. An average shark (6-7 m length) can eat 142.5 kg of eggs in a day. That's about 43, 000 kilocalories of energy; equivalent to over 8 kg of milk chocolate. Daily! Nom.

Our interns have encountered many different species on sea-fishing trips so far this December. It's been very exciting, especially for our three new interns who recently attended a course on fishing for research by our field specialist, Acheley. Under his guidance, interns have successfully landed and collected data on smooth-hounds, pyjama catsharks, spiny dogfish, a smooth hammerhead, and two species we rarely encounter at our study site reefs, tiger catsharks and a spearnose skate. The three tiger catsharks caught were between 39 and 46cm TL (two females and one male). The male had calcified claspers, indicating he is ready to mate, despite being only 39.5cm TL. The spearnose skate (Rostroraja alba) had a disc width of 108cm.

🏄🏽‍♂️❤️🦈 #Repost @oneoceanresearch ・・・ The sensitivities of a sharks ampullae of lorenzini are still being understood. What we do know is that shark have the ability to read their environment in unique ways: the literal feeling of bioelectonics and mechanal outputs. Shark shield testing involves funded study of this organ system allowing science to witness changes and responses of various species to developing technology. We hope it contributes to the curiosities and ah-ha moments in realization and understanding that sharks are important, necessary and much more greatly affected by negativities of humans impact than we experience by them. To even find sharks to “interact” with is difficult because of dramatic effects on habitat and populations but also because they are so often cautious and respectful in nature. #nature video @shark_shield @anthony_walsh_ some of our project and affiliate partners 🙏🏽😎🦈🤙🏽⚡️🏄🏽‍♀️ #sharkshield #sharkresearch #studyshark #ampullaeoflorenzini #electromagneticreception #oneoceandiving @oceanramsey @juansharks #серфинг #акулы #сенсор #серфборд #доска #безопасныйсерфинг #тимати
