Hello Catalina Area Divers!
A research project studying Horn Shark Eggs/Nests is being launched this spring and we need your help. In order to narrow our search area we need to know what locations around Catalina appear to have the most eggs in this breeding season. To that end we are asking anyone who finds horn shark eggs to contact our research team with some basic information. Please DO NOT move or handle the eggs in any way! If you see horn shark eggs while you are out diving please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with as much of the following information as possible. (please include horn shark research in the subject heading)
Date and Time
Location of Dive
Depth at which eggs were located
Approximate Number of Eggs Seen
Substrate (i.e rocky or sandy bottom etc.)
Any other potentially relevant observations.
Thanks so much for the help!
