Greenland Sharks: Old and Cold

Cover Image

A Greenland shark female 2.9 m in length tagged with three PSATs. As these sharks mostly occupy waters where no light is available, measurements of light intensity at a certain depth at a certain time cannot be used to estimate the geo-location (as it for example can with tunas). To get more information on Greenland shark migration routes three tags were mounted on the sharks which will then release after various time periods. Photo by Julius Nielsen
