A team of researchers led by National Geographic Explorer Dr. Aviad Scheinin (Morris Kahn Marine Research Station) has been awarded a $100,000 National Geographic Wayfinder Grant to track the migration of sharks along the eastern Mediterranean Sea and learn about their adaptation to changing climatic conditions. Dr. Scheinin set up the first “Shark Tagging School in the Mediterranean” to train researchers from across the region to track sharks using satellite tags and acoustic receivers. This research will help to better understand the ecology and conservation of sharks in the eastern Mediterranean Sea, which is facing a number of threats, including climate change and overfishing.
