Dr. Simon Berrow, co-founder and researcher with the IBSP, provides valuable insight into the basking shark research process. To make these projects possible, the Irish Basking Shark Project works with numerous collaborators. For example, the slime sampling genetics work described here took place with the Galway-Mayo Institute of Technology, University of Aberdeen, Manx Basking Shark Watch, and the Marine Biological Association of the United Kingdom/University of Southampton. To learn more about this project, check out the peer-reviewed publication and media coverage. For information on the other research featured in this video, visit our project pages.
