planned protection area would help basking sharks

A proposed Marine Protected Area (MPA) off Scotland's west coast would help basking sharks, researchers say.
Scientists from the University of Exeter and Scottish Natural Heritage (SNH) satellite tracked 36 basking sharks in summer months of 2012-2014 and found 86% showed "some degree of residency" in the proposed Sea of the Hebrides MPA.
Sharks also returned year after year, and the scientists believe the area provides conditions for key activities such as foraging and possibly breeding, making it an area important for essential parts of the shark's life cycle for which MPAs can be designated.
Dr Suzanne Henderson, managing the project for SNH, said: "We have known for some time that basking sharks are frequently seen in Scottish waters during the summer, and they are big attraction fo

brumbies lose cliffhanger as sharks snatch injury time win in super rugby battle

The Durban Sharks broke ACT Brumbies hearts in a Super Rugby cliffhanger at Canberra Stadium on Saturday night.The Sharks scored the match-winning try 60 seconds after the final siren when replacement Curwin Bosch put through a kick that bamboozled Brumbies defenders and Lukhanyo Am dived on the loose ball.

canberra raiders five-eighth blake austin plays down nrl rivalry with cronulla s

It's being billed as a grudge match, but Canberra Raiders five-eighth Blake Austin says former Cronulla Sharks hooker Michael Ennis' decision to hang up the boots has already ended any budding rivalry between the two clubs.Ennis became public enemy No. 1 in Canberra when he mocked the Viking Clap after the Sharks beat the Raiders in the opening week of the 2016 NRL finals.

study shows how skates, rays and sharks sense electrical fields

Sharks, rays and skates can hunt for prey hidden in the sandy sea floor by "listening" for faint traces of bioelectricity -- they can literally sense their prey's heart beating. The basic anatomy of the electro-sensory organs that accomplish this feat has been known for decades, but the biological mechanisms - how electrosensory cells pick up faint electrical signs of life -- has remained a puzzle.Now, in a new study published online Monday, March 6 in Nature, researchers at UC San Francisco have cracked the mystery of the electrosensory organ of Leucoraja erinacea, commonly called the little skate, in a series of experiments that traced the mechanisms of electrosensation all the way from genes to cell physiology to behavior. "Skates and sharks have some of the most sensitive electrorecept

The gains follow enactment of fishing regulations in the early 1990s after decades of declining shark numbers.Scientists estimate that over-fishing of sharks along the southeast U.S. coast--which began in earnest following the release of Jaws in 1975 and continued through the 1980s--had reduced populations by 60-99% compared to un-fished levels.
