Off on her holidays

Hundshai (Galeorhinus galeus)

We’ve just had a recapture notified to us from a commercial vessel.

Tag no 6982 was caught and released 9 miles off the North Devon coast by the FV Pacemaker (GY165).

She was originally tagged by Mick Trousdale during this years Sharkatag.

She’s swum over 300 miles since then and was probably on her way to her southern wintering grounds – in the past we’ve had returns from commercial vessels fishing off Portugal and in the Mediterranean off Spain.

Hopefully we’ll see her again off the Scottish coast or at another Sharkatag.
