Sharks Among Us #3 – Meet the gang – From Rat Fish to Sixgills! (Video)
Great thanks to Rendezvous Dive Adventures for sharing this video with me!
It’s a fantastic (7.5 minute) interview with Dr. Chris Harvey-Clark of the University of British Columbia and the Greenland Shark and Elasmobranch Education and Research Group (GEERG).
He discusses the shark species found in our cold-rich waters in the Pacific Northwest: “We have some of the largest species of sharks in the world swimming in these waters”.
Great video of sharks and I particularly appreciated Dr. Harvey-Clark’s explanation of the ecological link between rat fish and bluntnose sixgill sharks and, related to this, the latest research on the “ocean wanderings” of sixgills.
I learned too about the Shark Observation Network where divers’ observations can help research.
