In October 2022, we worked with Saving The Blue to support Shark conservation. We were able to tag 2 Silky Female Sharks as a result of the support and contributions of our customers!
In order to study and conserve Silky Sharks, a new Acoustic Receiver (a listening station) has been deployed in The Bahamas on November 2022.
Over the next eight months, the Listening Station, which is 80 feet below the surface of the sea, will stay in place and collect data on any tagged sharks that pass by.
When we learn more in the upcoming months, we'll give you another update on this interesting and significant endeavor.
