Tracking Porirua's rig sharks


The sharks have arrived

14th October, 2015

Uniquely numbered fisheries tags

Today was the first calm day of the season, I went out in Pauatahanui inlet to see if any sharks had arrived yet? In 2.5 hours I caught 17 rig sharks, tagged all of them with uniquely numbered Fisheries Tags and returned them to the water. All of them were mature males except one, an imature female.
I had no idea there would be so many sharks. My next task is to install all my equipment so I can see if the rig sharks are swimming around differently to last year?
