Guy Harvey Ocean Foundation
We would like to thank Guy Harvey and his Ocean Foundation for their support. Their generous grant earlier this year has helped to fund various projects here in Bimini. Our annual PIT project, monthly longline, as well as our PhD students' research have all benefited enormously from the vital equipment that we have been able to purchase through this grant.
BBFS could not carry out our daily research activities if it were not for the generous support of Mercury Marine. Our full fleet of research vessels are powered by Mercury outboard engines ranging in size from 40HP all the way up to twin 115HP.
Mercury has been an important part of the Sharklab since it's inception and has supported Dr. Gruber's research since the 1980s.
Davey Marine Center Inc.
Davey Marine Center has been instrumental in keeping our vessels on the water. Davey supplied the Prolines and our old Aquasport to BBFS. Mercury Marine, through Davey Marine, continues to provide replacement outboard engines on a regular basis. Davey is always quick to install these new engines and continually supports our programs so that we can get back out on the water and do the things we do. A huge THANK YOU goes out to Mario Aiello from Davey.
At the Sharklab we rely heavily on our boats and put them through a lot of hard work. We could not continue if not for the generous support of API Marine, who have been providing for the marine and industrial electrical aftermarket since 1963.
Aftco president Bill Shedd has very generously supplied tailors to our shark team. We use these to get large sharks under control alongside the vessel. Thank you
Wally Bell of Composite Research & Sundance Boats, has graciously supplied a fleet of flat bottom and bay boats. These vessels, which include four 16" and two 17" skiffs, as well as two 20" bay hybrid boats are our work horses here at the lab, and we couldn't be happier to have an entire fleet of eight research vessels supplied by Wally Bell & Sundance Boats!
Since the donation of the skiffs in 2008, we continue to be amazed at the craftsmanship and durability of Sundance boats. The two additional 20" boats donated in 2012 have become the firm favorites for the staff. These are perfect hybrid vessels for the shallow waters around Bimini as well for working up huge sharks offshore in the Gulf Stream!
SPOT creates satellite tracers and telephones. With out increase in offshore research, we are often out of radio range, which can be worrying for the home crew.
With our new sponsorship with SPOT, they have solved our worry, by providing the Sharklab with a tracer and a satellite phone. This means our home crew will be reachable from any distance, even if it's just to notify them of a shark! The SPOT trace will also send live updates on our field crew's actions, as well as an emailed track of their movements!
Save our Seas Foundation
Save our Seas are one of the Sharklab's primary sponsors, and we are happy to form a partnership with their foundation. Save our Seas Foundation supports the Sharklab in numerous ways; supporting us through funding, collaborating with us on campaigns, and promoting us through social media. We hope to continue this partnership throughout the future.
Here at the Shark Lab it is important for us to find ways to share our scientific findings with the community and public. This has been made much easier with the donation of 1,000's of brochures, newsletters, & business cards from Elite Flyers!
Dr Manuela Menendez
Dr Manuela Menendez kindly donated an SUV to the Bimini Biological Field Station Foundation. This donation is crucial to much of the research we carry out and we hope to be able to keep this vehicle running long into the future.
