Shark Park visibility recovers!

The visibility at Shark Park was 30m today. The current was moderate south-north and the water still a bit chilly at 21 celsius. The relief was in the improvement in visibility. There were around 40 duskies and 30 blacktips. The north easter was up early and chased us off the water in the end. The other good news was that Dr. Matt Dicken is back and we are trying to recover the listening stations from the fine scale movement study sponsored by Save Our Seas and ourselves. So far we have found one station of three deep stations that the team searched for today. The plan is to search for another three tomorrow. This work is vital to the success of the project as the stations contain the vital information on the tiger sharks movement in the area since December 2006.
