2011 and 2012 - Sharks
Participants in Shark Fest work alongside GCRL scientists to capture, tag, document, and release sharks in the Mississippi Sound. The team uses both rod and reel tackle and longlines. In addition to catching sharks, participants help weigh, measure, and document details of each specimen before tagging and releasing them. Participants learn while assisting with valuable scientifc research and have fun, too.
