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

Alexia CURMI (San Gwann, Malta), Elsbeth Louise McSTAY (Newport-on-Tay, Fife, Scotland) and David Anthony JONES (Pembrokeshire, Wales, UK)

Andy Brandy CASAGRANDE IV is living in Fishoek on the shores of False Bay where he is assisting Alison KOCK (South African Museum / Save Our Seas) with her research project at Seal Island for the next few months.

Timo SECKLER (Ellenberg, Germany) has been our assistant from the 15th of July to the 15th of August, and will continue his assistantship with the White Shark Trust from September through January 2006. Timo left for Mossel Bay on the 15th of July to assist Ryan JOHNSON with his active telemetry tracking of White Sharks in the bay.

Following a few days of extremely rough sea conditions, we launched Lamnidae in the early afternoon of Monday the 29th of August. Nice day, once we were past the breaking waves of Kleinbaai harbour. We observed only two White Sharks today, and they probably were the slowest and laziest Sharks on the planet, just cruising very slowly around the boat. Nice afternoon!
On Tuesday the 30th of August, we were invited to join the Shark Diving Unlimited team on board Barracuda. Drizzle and rain made the day much more comfortable being on this larger boat. We observed six different White Sharks today, among which an old and unmistakable friend, Rooster or Shredded Fin, who got injured by the propellors of some boat last year.
