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

Alex BROWN (Burnham, England), Trey SNOW (Wilmington, North Carolina, USA), Nicolas PADE (Nivaa, Denmark) and John NICHOLS (La Jolla, California, USA).

On Sunday the 7th of November 2004, we welcomed Dan (friend of Alex travelling around Africa and Australia) on board Lamnidae. Very nice day at sea with some light chop. We observed eight different White Sharks, and we spotted one Shark with a satellite tag from last year.
Shark Diving Unlimited hosted a film crew from UK's Channel 5 television company. So watch out for the new company logo getting munched by a White Shark! Quite an interesting and complicated system they had set up for that one shot... But they got what they needed!
In the evening, Tracey welcomed us with a feast for dinner... roasted leg of lamb, roasted chicken, vegetables, potatoes, etc... We spent a very nice evening together.

Tracey, Nick, Alex, Trey and John will soon depart on a roadtrip along the Garden Route for a few days...

Monday the 8th of November started as a nice day, but swiftly turned into a rough sea day with a strong winter wind blowing across the Atlantic... We only observed two White Sharks, and both were vegeterians, more interested in Kelp than Tuna. But our first Sharks remained our boat for three hours, and our second one was probably one of the smallest I ever saw...
At dawn on Tuesday the 9th of November, Tracey and our assistants, John, Trey, Nick and Alex, are going on a 5-day road trip along the Garden Route, to Mossel Bay, Knysna, Tsitsikamma and Wilderness National Park, surfers paradise at Jeffrey's Bay and Addo Elephant National Park...
