Going Face – to – Face with Sharks in the Gulf

WFSU ventures out into the Gulf of Mexico to discover what it’s like to catch and tag sharks. Research Biologist John Carlson catches sharks and brings them aboard as part of a study to measure juvenile shark populations in the area. Once aboard, sharks are measured, studied, and tagged so that they can be tracked in subsequent shark research. www.nmfs.noaa.gov
