Basking Shark Research
We operate a number of science projects on basking sharks. During the peak season in the Hebrides our programme operates around our tours where we have a collaboration with scientists and have interns on our boat. However in the autumn we have initiated a programme to monitor the southerly migration of basking sharks in the clyde. We obtained some impressive results in our first year in 2016 and we are very excited to extend this programme in 2017. We hope for both re-captures of sighted basking sharks and new ones to add to our photo ID catalouge.
Our head guide Luke has completed a video update with some insights into our programme and how you can be part of it this year! With some stunning footage and details of different areas of our research! For more information on how to be part of it, click here.
