  1. Very cool site. I look forward to seeing what goes on with the Bull sharks.

  2. So what are the bull sharks who visit the Neuse River up to in the winter months?

  3. Hi, I learned about the research you are doing on Bull sharks in the Neuse River from my new neighbor Andy Read. I am fascinated by NC coastal shark species and their behavior beyond the coast into the rivers, creeks and estuaries and therefore your research into this behavior. I have caught many “discolored” sharks (Black Tips and Bulls) from the surf and have always assumed this was due to their time spent on the “other side” of inlets. Admittedly and for full disclosure, I do enjoy surf fishing for sharks but I am strictly a catch and release fisherman that uses circle hooks and quickly removes hooks with bolt cutters for quick human releases. I was wondering if you have a link to the current results of your research that is appropriate for public consumption?
    Thanks,

      Hi Albert. Thanks for your comment! We’re still conducting fieldwork in the Neuse, although the weather this week is a bit too windy. We don’t have our results posted anywhere yet, but the blog post that I wrote for Southern Fried Scientist explains what we’re doing: http://www.southernfriedscience.com/?p=10973. Where do you normally catch your bull sharks? Cheers, Meagan
