Shark tagging programme update

April 20, 2011 by dyertrust

March and April have been really exciting months with regards to theDICT white shark tagging programme.

We left off on this blog last time introducing Nina our fourth tagged 2.3m female shark. After tagging her in the shallows at the end of January, she made her way toDyer Islandwhere we managed to gain plenty of interesting hours of tracking data on her. Nina displayed some fascinating behaviour and after spending the whole of February and half of March following her whereabouts in the bay we decided that we finally had enough hours on her. We then successfully managed to retrieve our acoustic transmitter and stored it away for further use. Thanks Nina for a different perspective on what female white sharks can do in the area of Gansbaai!
