Back in August last year I was lucky enough to catch a tagged blacktip shark, details were recorded and sent off to The Cooperative Shark Tagging Program. It took a while but it has been added to their database, and the details sent back to me - which is pretty cool.
Blacktip number 22281.
54 inches to fork of tail.
64 inches in total. And a male (below).
The first time it had been reported since being released, so not masses of information but it had been tagged for 2.4 years. And they sent me a hat - I think my brother has got four of these but I don’t think many people in England are wearing them. Cheers Paulos!
