About This Project
How significant an impact do keystone shark species have on fisheries? We’re still in the dark because we don’t really know their diets. By using precise eDNA and fatty acids techniques, we will be able to determine sharks' diet and feeding behaviors. This will allow us a window into the true impact these top predators have on their ecosystem, assisting conservation efforts and laying the groundwork for using these new approaches to help us understand our oceans worldwide.
