    About This Project

    Marine predators are an important part of our ocean's ecosystems. However, overfishing has reduced predator populations worldwide. My study focuses on one such species: the endangered basking shark. Recent studies have shown a drastic decline in the areas inhabited by basking sharks. Most studies rely on surface sightings to estimate population size, so I want to see if any sharks are hiding beneath the surface by tracking how they move vertically through the water column.
