The White Shark Trust Field Research Assistantship is proud to introduce you to our assistants:

Callum Michael CALL (Aberdeen, Scotland), Holly FRANK (Surprise, Arizona, USA), James van den BROEK (Sydney, New South Wales, Australia), and Nicola PYLE (Portsmouth, Hampshire, England).

We welcomed back Andy B. Casagrande IV to the White Shark Trust as a guest for a few weeks...

Wednesday the 25th of August... The Millenium Falcon, our landcruiser, has been fixed over the past couple of days. We went out to sea on board Lamnidae. Beautiful day at sea with barely any wind, but a very slow Shark day, but by the end of the day, we had a good overall day... We observed four different White Sharks today.
We waited over two hours for our first Shark... We spotted some Sharks before then, but they swam in very wide circles staying far away from the boat, minding their own business... The Sharks were different from the ones we spotted last week. Our last Shark was under two meters in length. Very shy Sharks today...
Thursday the 26th of August 2004 was a wonderful warm 'summer' day at sea... Barely any wind in the morning, and just a light Southerly breeze in the afternoon, just enough to get our chum slick to drift somewhere. Slow day for the first couple of hours, and then we had continuous Sharks around the boat for nearly five hours! Amazing!!!
We observed nine different White Sharks today... Our third Shark was really small, under two meters in length (actually we saw this same Shark yesterday also), and our second Shark was massive, over four meters in length and she was really wide... She probably had a good meal recently... She is still too 'small' to be sexually mature and pregnant... See below...
