Olsen's winged skate
Great hammerhead shark (this poor guy was all jacked up)
Lesser butterfly ray
Leafnose spineless skate
There you have it, folks. Another day in the life of a shark biology student.
Tomorrow more than likely will be an all day boat trip. We may meet up in the morning just to call it off because of the weather. Who knows. If we go, we'll be fishing for elasmobranchs and maybe using a trawl as well. Here at the Gulf Coast Research Lab, we do science rain or shine!
