White sharks have been returning to our local waters in greater numbers in response to the regional recovery of seal populations. For more than a decade. the MA Division of Marine Fisheries and collaborators have been studying the ecology, behavior, and natural history of white sharks off the east coast of the US. Using state-of-the-art tagging technology, the focus of their current research has been to gain a better understanding of where, when, and how white sharks hunt their prey.
Join us for a special presentation with local shark expert Dr. Greg Skomal, the famed “Shark Man.” Greg has appeared repeatedly on The Discovery Channel’s Shark Week programming, but Greg lives Shark Week all year long.
This presentation will highlight Greg’s research as we attempt to develop a science-based strategy for mitigating potential shark and human conflicts.
