Bay of Fundy Sharks

Happy Shark Awareness Day, blog friends!!

We are well underway with our 2015 Shark Fishing/Tagging season and we are so pleased to say that we have successfully deployed TWO satellite tags!!

Each of our tags is set to record the sharks coordinates, depth and water temperature and data will be relayed via satellite when the shark is at the surface!

Pictured below are a few of the sharks from this season.... reeled in with the help of our amazing guests, tagged by our biologists on board and released healthy! The results of fishing with the pros!!

This shark was named Rosie by our guests fishing with us.
A distinguishing dark circle on the top of her Rostrum is a great ID for her.
Independence, caught on July 4th, is a large robust female.
Our first shark of the year, this big 92" female has yet to be named.
We will be having a contest to see if we can find a name that suits her!

Thanks so much for checking in with us! It has been one awesome 2015 so far and fingers crossed, it keeps getting better!
