    About This Project

    Sharks are sensitive to capture and handling. The stress response during commercial bycatch, recreational catch-and-release, and research fisheries captures may be exacerbated in certain environmental conditions. We're evaluating bull and bonnethead sharks' stress responses from measurements of their blood, when caught in waters of differing parameters (temperature, salinity, and dissolved oxygen). Findings may support capture and handling recommendations to minimize acute and delayed mortality.
