3/27/19 The Secret Lives of New England sharksPresented By: Simon Thorrold, Ph.D, Senior Scientist at Woods Hole Oceanographic InstitutionThe ocean around New England is home to a stunning array of pelagic sharks and rays, yet we know remarkably little about the ecology of these amazing predators. This is problematic for effective conservation and management of their populations and, in one notable case (the white shark), public safety. We are using satellite tags to gain a better understanding of the shark and ray movements in the North Atlantic Ocean, with some surprising results.  Closing the knowledge gap on pelagic predators in our waters is essential if we are to effectively conserve these species in the face of increasing pressure on ocean ecosystem services and the potential effects of climate change on the global ocean.
