Shark Bites and Shark Conservation: An Analysis of Human Attitudes Following Shark Bite Incidents in Two Locations in Australia
The Fins United Initiative is excited to showcase a BRAND NEW section to our program: the "Bite into Research" segment! TFUI officers will be reading articles that were published in regards to Chondrichthyans (those are the sharks, skates, rays, and chimaeras... and include any sector) and explain it in terms that everyone can understand. Up first, we have TFUI Officer Carissa Thiel reviewing the following paper:
Pepin‐Neff, C. and Wynter, T. (2018), Shark Bites and Shark Conservation: An Analysis of Human Attitudes Following Shark Bite Incidents in Two Locations in Australia. CONSERVATION LETTERS, 11: e12407. doi:10.1111/conl.12407
There are photographers, and then there are photographers. The ones who not only capture moments for forever, but that also work behind-the-scenes to make sure these moments are not numbered. Tom Vierus is one of those photographers who uses his impressive skills to make a difference in marine conservation. Check out his interview!
The Arrowhead dogfish (Deania profundora) is a decently-sized carnivore, reaching a maximum length of 1.04 metres but usually average around 80 cm. This makes it the smallest of the Deania genus! Found on the upper continental and insular slopes of its range (such as the Canary Islands, the Azores, off Namibia and in the Gulf of Mexico), they are observed at a depth range of 275 metres to 1,785 metres deep.
