Shark fishing season has officially begun for the ORB LAB. Last Friday, a crew struck out to try and recapture sharks carrying tags containing valuable information about the species assemblage encountered by these coastal apex predators.
But they weren’t expecting to catch this large female shark like this: The bait (a menhaden) first got eaten by a 3 feet long smooth dogfish which unfortunately fell victim to one of the top predators in the bay. The dogfish was about and completely swallowed by the sand tiger shark. Well just look at the picture it is worth thousand words!
