Keys dude: Funny. There's a group called ocearch that tracks tagged sharks. Big news down here in the Keys is that a 14-foot great white, one of the tracked sharks, is Katharine, tagged in Cape Cod last year. Arrived in the Keys Monday (every time they flip their tail in the air, the tag "pings" to give the location). Great whites are extremely rare down here though we have plenty of other kinds of sharks.
Keys dude: <<< Ocearch are a bunch of frat bro fishermen whose 'research' involves dragging exhausted white sharks onto their boat (crushing the shark's internal organs), drilling holes in their dorsal fins and bolting permanent GPS transmitters onto them. All for their reality show.Ocearch has already killed at least one white shark and the rest have those radios rusting on their fins. They're the Dane Cook of the shark research world. >>>I don't think you know how shark (or any animal) tagging works; it's almost always a fisherman who tags the fish -- they're right there way out in the ocean when the animal shows itself. And tagging isn't "drilling" and "bolting." Citation needed on the claim they killed a great white, please.
Keys dude: Darth Macho,I never heard of Shark Wranglers, so I am going to assume this is a thing from what you linked, which is sad. I think this is far different than what I said in my original post.
