Understanding the Secret Lives of Sharks
Camrin Braun, Joint Program Student, Biology Department
All the information that scientists understand about the iconic great white
shark comprise only a few short sentences. We have no generalizable knowledge
about what they eat or their feeding behaviors, no knowledge of where they go
to mate or to breed, and absolutely no answers to “why” they do almost
anything. For all other shark species, we know even less. Learn how researchers
are using cutting-edge, satellite-based tags on sharks in our back yard on Cape
Cod to answer some of these basic questions about sharks.
