Sharks are key to our marine ecosystems worldwide. They are important predators in the marine environment, helping to control fish populations that they feed on and providing balance to the food web. Scientists use electronic tags to gather information about shark movements, behavior, and distribution patterns, which can help NOAA Fisheries better conserve their populations.
Join Dr. Tobey Curtis, a NOAA Fisheries shark researcher, to learn more about advances in how we tag sharks. He'll be answering your questions about sharks from 3:00 p.m. - 4:00 p.m. EST on July 31.
