World of Discovery: Exploring the Hidden Lives of Sharks

Join us for a free lecture in our University of Delaware series as we step (or swim) into the fascinating world of sharks!

Sharks capture the public’s attention like no other species, as demonstrated by the popularity of Discovery Channel’s “Shark Week” and the frequency with which stories of sharks “lurking” in local waters grab headlines. However, despite the great public interest in sharks and the important role they play in marine ecosystems, these animals remain misunderstood and challenging to study. Learn how new research is shedding light on the biology and ecology of sharks and how scientists are using cutting edge technologies to view the hidden lives of sharks and aid in the conservation and management of these iconic predators.

Speaker Bio: Aaron Carlisle is an Assistant Professor in the School of Marine Science and Policy at the University of Delaware. He has studied the biology and ecology of fishes for the last 20 years, largely focusing on elasmobranchs (sharks, skates, and rays) and pelagic fishes (tunas, billfishes).

Wine & snacks available for purchase during the event.

7-8 p.m. on Wednesday, October 11, 2023

Eastern Oysters (𝘊𝘳𝘢𝘴𝘴𝘰𝘴𝘵𝘳𝘦𝘢 𝘷𝘪𝘳𝘨𝘪𝘯𝘪𝘤𝘢) live in clusters, tucked into nooks and crannies and tightly wedged together. As they grow, their shells become gnarly and bent from pressing up against one another.
