Current Research and Education Programs


FPSR biological research initiatives concerning sharks, skates and rays are numerous and diverse, ranging from studies on relative abundance and distribution, to systematics and evolutionary relationships. Life history studies on elasmobranchs are a major focus of research at the FPSR, where scientists are investigating age, growth, and reproduction of numerous species. Research projects also include basic and applied studies on the biology, ecology, and behavior of coastal and pelagic elasmobranchs. Opportunities are available for graduate and undergraduate students to become involved in ongoing shark research projects.
