Shredder – Fleet Miami

In April of 2016, SeaKeepers worked with UM Shark Research and Fleet Miami

In April of 2016, SeaKeepers worked with UM Shark Research and Fleet Miami to give filmmakers from the organization Youth Making Ripples a shark research experience. Onboard D/Y Shredder, six youth filmmakers, ranging in age from 13 to 16, along with 2 of the organization’s founders and six UM researchers spent the day tagging sharks outside of Haulover Inlet. Over five hours, we deployed 22 drum lines and caught 8 sharks – 5 Sandbar Sharks, 2 Great Hammerheads and 1 Scalloped Hammerhead. Everyone participated and helped with taking fin clips, tagging, making measurements and assessing overall shark health.
