Default World's first in-water spot tagging of an adult white shark.

MCSI's Dr. MICHAEL DOMEIER AND DR. OSCAR SOSA-NISHIZAKI (Director of CICESE) PERFORM THE WORLD'S FIRST IN-WATER SPOT TAGGING OF AN ADULT WHITE SHARK.

New methods developed, tested and implemented by MCSI involve a device to prevent gut hooking, soft fishing gear to prevent skin abrasions and constant forward movement to fully irrigate the gills. Sharks tagged in this manner, including the larges
t white shark to ever be SPOT tagged, were far more vigorous upon release than our previous method that lifted the sharks from the water. We strive to constantly improve our methods to do what is best for the sharks and the scientific community.

We have many to thank, but those who deserve special mention include veterinarian Dr. Erik Madison, Mr. Keith Poe and Davidson Boats. Stay tuned for updates...and apologies for the long FB absence during our expedition.
