The White Shark Trust Field Research Assistantship is proud to introduce you to our assistants:

Benjamin WESTROPE (Wilmington, North Carolina, USA), Jennifer LEE (Arcadia, California, USA), Alex RILEY (Nottingham, England) and Giacomo PALAVICINI DE WITTE from Mexico.

On Thursday the 6th of May 2004, we managed to get out to sea again after a couple of rough sea days due to a strong offshore storm... Beautiful day to start with, and in the afternoon fog drifted in... Flat glassy day...

Ben stayed at home as he was very sick yesterday and did not feel good enough to be at sea understandably...

Today is also Jennifer's last day with the White Sharks... but at least, she had a fantastic day with 12 different White Sharks. She fell in love with a small male Shark who just loved her bait... We will miss Jennifer very much!

The following photographs were taken by Michael Scholl from the back of Lamnidae during the last couple of days with a Nikon F90x and a 28mm 1:2.8 lense in an Ikelite housing.
