Scientists have just completed a successful trip to Stewart Island, tagging 23 Great White Sharks.

The sharks were tagged with acoustic and popup tags, and filmed underwater for photo-identification purposes. The tags and photos will allow scientists to investigate the sharks’ habitat and behaviour, and to determine the periods during which they inhabit locations such as Stewart Island.
