The White Shark Trust Field Research Assistantship is proud to introduce you to our assistants:
Benjamin WESTROPE (Wilmington, North Carolina, USA) and Jennifer LEE (Arcadia, California, USA).
On Wednesday the 31st of March 2004, we were invited by Shark Diving Unlimited to join them on board Barracuda... We were lucky to be on a larger boat than Lamnidae as the wind was blowing and the sea quite rough. We observed 10 different White Sharks today, but none of the Sharks really stayed around the boat unfortunately. But this was so much better than the aquarium yesterday...
Below are some photographs taken today from the cage on Barracuda... These pictures were taken by Michael Scholl with a Nikon F90x and 28mm 1:2.8 lense in an Ikelite housing. This was the first trial with this equipment kindly lent by Tom Peschak.
