VOLUNTEERS WANTED FOR SHARK TRACKING AND FIELD RESEARCH AT THE BIMINI
BIOLOGICAL FIELD STATION, S. BIMINI, BAHAMAS

Friday, August 9, 1996

Dear Shark Enthusiasts:

I am seeking a few volunteers to help continue our tracking studies on
young lemon sharks begun in 1993.  This fall for the second season in a
row, we plan to use special speed-sensing transmitters to determine, in
detail, the activity rates of 1.5 - 2.1 meter lemon sharks.

Sharks will be captured on longlines and fitted with the previously
calibrated speed transmitters.  In addition, we will surgically implant
18-month coded transmitters so that the sharks can be followed for long
periods.  We expect the speed transmitters to be shed after several days
so they will have to be recovered, rebatteried and recalibrated before
catching a new shark to study.  We plan to do at least six sharks and
possibly more.   We already have four sharks with coded transmitters from
our summer Earthwatch project.

We plan to start on or about October 15, 1996 and continue through the
spring of 1997.  If you wish to join us you must be able to pay room and
board at Bimini ($375/mo) and stay for a minimum of one month, preferably
longer..

Last year's work, presented at the American Elasmobranch Society meeting
in June formed the basis of Fred Sundstroem's (University of Linkoeping,
Sweden) MS thesis.  I believe the comming work can also make a very nice
research project for a Master's Thesis and I am seeking a student already
enrolled in an MS program-- interested in pursuing this study for their
degree work

If you wish further information please contact:

Dr. Samuel H. Gruber
Bimini Biological Field Station
