Bermuda Shark Project Presentation

November 16, 2011

They have some new shark tales to share with Bermuda.

Bermuda Shark Project founders founders Choy Aming and Neil Burnie will be giving a talk on their work and the latest findings of their ongoing research tomorrow [Nov.17] at the Bermuda Aquarium, Museum & Zoo.

Mr. Aming said: “We will be giving an overall view of Bermuda’s sharks as well as showing our latest tracks and video.

“Plus we have some new stories to tell … like swimming with 75 sharks locally and Neil’s recent trip to Mexico where he was seeing four Great Whites at a time.”

Tickets are $15 and are available at Endsmeet Animal Hospital or at the door. Cocktails will be served at 6:30pm and the talk gets underway at 7.

The Bermuda Shark Project began as an independent research programme aimed at discovering more about the habits and migratory patterns of Tiger Sharks.

“We satellite tag Tiger Sharks that are caught and released within the territorial waters of Bermuda,” said Mr. Aming. “The project started in 2005 and rapidly developed. In 2008 we started to use satellite tags as well as National Oceanic & Atmospheric Administration number tags.

“By the 2010 season we saw over 20 sharks tagged and transmitting data about the shark movements. The tags are paid by the generous support of our sponsors.”
