Group studies sharks at Brooklyn Bridge Park
A research group has made its way to Brooklyn Bridge Park to research and study sharks.
OCEARCH travels the world and collects little-known data about the sharks. Researchers catch the sharks and put satellite trackers on their fins, which allows them to watch where the sharks go to mate, give birth and grow.
They also perform medical tests on the sharks to make sure that they are healthy and learn how to protect their populations.
In a statement, Brooklyn Bridge Park officials said, "We are excited to have OCEARCH at Brooklyn Bridge Park. The research the group has been conducting is fascinating and informative and having them docked at Pier 6 allows them to communicate directly with local schools, park visitors and the community."
