Aming To Discuss Tiger Shark Research In NYC

October 15, 2019

Bermudian ocean explorer Choy Aming will be speaking at the upcoming Sea Stories 2019 event at New York’s famed Explorers Club.

The senior aquarist at the Bermuda Aquarium, Museum & Zoo and director of The Bermuda Shark Project, Mr. Aming is one of five speakers invited to address the prestigious day-long symposium on November 9

His presentation, titled “Secrets of the Tiger Shark Highway”, will be based around research he conducted with The Bermuda Shark Project, an initiative he co-founded in 2007.

The project has since tagged more than 50 sharks, leading to a better understanding of annual tiger shark migration in the Atlantic.

Mr. Aming has also conducted shark research on projects for the BBC, Discovery Channel and Google .

He collaborated on the Bermuda-based natural history TV series Ocean Vet with Tiger Shark Project partner and friend the late Dr. Neil Burnie.

Founded in New York City in 1904, The Explorers Club promotes the scientific exploration of land, sea, air, and space by supporting research and education in the physical, natural and biological sciences.

The annual Sea Stories event is day focused on ocean exploration, conservation, scuba diving, shipwrecks and marine life.

Among the other speakers is Beth Neale, the four-time South African National Freediving Champion and African Continental Record Holder.

She recently broke another record with a no-fins freedive to 164 feet — the deepest freedive ever — in Bermuda.

Ms. Neale dedicated the last five years to ocean conservation initiatives in South Africa, Mozambique and Bermuda.
