Professor John Mohan and some of his students at the Mohan Shark and Fish Ecology Lab at UNE recently deployed Maine’s first real-time shark detection buoy between Ferry Beach and Old Orchard Beach. Learn about how these students are working to increase safety and awareness by expanding the monitoring of white shark populations along the coast of Maine. They’ll also discuss the innovative technology these students are developing to reduce shark capture in recreational and commercial fisheries.
