Interested in sponsoring a shark by purchasing a satellite tag?


You or your group/organization will have the opportunity to select what species of shark you would like your sat tag applied to and get to name that shark. GPS location data will also be sent to you allowing you to see where your shark has been traveling. For more information or to sponsor a shark please click the button below. 

"SLAM"


SLAM is a seven foot tiger shark that was caught by CMERA students on July 9, 2018 on a longline on the intracoastal side of Anclote Key in Pinellas County Florida. Caught in only 12 feet of water using mullet for bait, right where Joe was caught, we are also anxious to see where SLAM travels over the next 12-18 months. This data will be very helpful in determining movement patterns of tiger sharks in the Gulf of Mexico. Special thanks to Sabrina, Lysla, Anjelica and Matt Robertson for donating the satellite tag placed on SLAM.

"Joe"


Joe is a six and a half foot great hammerhead female that was caught by CMERA students on July 10, 2018. Joe was caught on a longline on the intracoastal side of Anclote Key in Pinellas County Florida. Caught in only 12 feet of water using mullet for bait we are anxious to see where Joe travels over the next 12-18 months. This data will be very helpful in determining movement patterns of great hammerhead sharks in the Gulf of Mexico. Special thanks to Marybeth and Alex Morris (CMERA student) for donating the satellite tag placed on Joe. Joe is named after and in memory of Alex's father.
