    About This Project

    Many research and conservation efforts are dedicated to managing species like salmon, and these often try to mitigate the impact of humans. But what about other predators? We are taking a look at one potential candidate: the salmon shark. Using sightings reports, tissue samples, and tagging, we will learn what they eat, how often, and where. Our goal is to determine how much these sharks affect salmon numbers in the Pacific Northwest.
