Tagging Great Whites
In this Sept. 7, 2012, photo, Ocearch expedition leader Chris Fischer applies sunscreen before leaving the ship to check chum locations for signs of great white shark activity in the Atlantic Ocean off the coast of Chatham, Mass. as deck hand Juan Valencia, left, monitors chumming activity off the back of the research vessel. The Ocearch team baits the fish and leads them onto a lift, tagging and taking blood, tissue and semen samples up close from the world’s most feared predator. The real-time satellite tag tracks the shark each time its dorsal fin breaks the surface, plotting its location on a map. (AP Photo/Stephan Savoia)
