Hot Science - Cool Talk "Save the...Sharks!?"

“We have been hating sharks on general principles for centuries … now it is high time that they should pay up.”  This was a 1928 invitation to harvest sharks in Scientific Monthly (now Science). This mentality has been accepted by generations of fishermen and fishery managers. However, modern science shows many of the world’s shark stocks have decreased to unprecedented levels, placing ocean ecosystems in peril. Through his research and interactions with sharks, Dr. Stunz will share the history and current status of their declines, and their future along the northern Gulf of Mexico.
