    About This Project

    Shark populations are being fished at unsustainable levels throughout much of our oceans. Because deep sea sharks grow slowly and have few offspring, they are particularly susceptible to overexploitation. We hope to better understand the effects of capture on two species of deep sea sharks, the gulper and the Cuban dogfish, as well as identify their chances of survival if released alive. Visit the abstract page for more details!
    Blast off!
