The White Shark Trust Field Research Assistantship is proud to introduce you to our assistants:
Anna PEZALLA (Oak Park, Illinois, USA), Benjamin WESTROPE (Wilmington, North Carolina, USA), Richard P.A. ATKINSON (Harrogate, North Yorkshire, England), and Benjamin De RIDDER (Schotten, Belgium).
Wednesday the 10th of March 2004 turned out to be another overcast day... A Shark (see below) was observed feeding on a dead seal soon after we arrived. Our first Shark remained around Lamnidae for nearly two hours (the Shark we observed a couple of days ago with the bad scars). We observed seven different White Sharks today! Great day!
Three of the Sharks spotted today were over 350cm in length (12+ feet). Two of these Sharks remained around the boat for well over a hour. Although the surface glare was bad due to the overcast sky, it was great to see these Sharks!
