Shark Tagging in Miami

For our fourth day of class, we traveled to Miami to embark on a shark tagging adventure with the RJ Dunlap Marine Conservation Program, which consisted of University of Miami students. We caught and released five different species with a total tally of eleven sharks: Great Hammerhead (Sphyrna mokarran), Lemon (Negaprion brevirostris), Sandbar (Carcharhinus plumbeus), Tiger (Galeocerdo cuvier), and Nurse (Ginglymostoma cirratum).
