We were delighted to release this beautiful Nursehound on Saturday. A very happy day.
Originally recovered in an eggcase from a landed shark at the fishmarket, she has been very well nurtured by the Malta National Aquarium, and with help from Maltaqua she was safely released back to where she belongs. She has been successfully tagged, so that eventually we will be able to discover her travels.
We hope you will understand that we couldn’t invite a lot of people this time, given covid restrictions, but will invite you to join us again for shark releases as soon as it is safe to do so.
We wish her a long, productive life ahead!
Watch out for our next video where we explain our whole Recovery and Release programme. We are making this especially for Science in the City and will share it with you very soon.
