This is a symbolic shark adoption!

 

Our $50 Bronze Level Donation allows you to symbolically adopt a Juvenile Lemon Shark from our database. You will be able to NAME your shark, and you will receive a beautiful adoption certificate with your shark's NAME, choose who it is ADOPTED BY, it's PIT TAG number, measurements, & approximate age at capture as well as our Lemon Shark Fact File. Please note, this tag is not a tracking tag, and you will not receive further data or updates about the shark.

What is a PIT TAG? Passive Integrated Transponders are small, rice sized microchips (each with a unique identifying code) very similar to the types of microchips used for pets. For over two decades, every juvenile lemon shark we caught was given a PIT tag, which allowed us to quickly find out if we were catching a new shark or a previously captured individual. These tags have provided a huge amount of data for our Lemon Shark Family Tree and natal philopatry discoveries. Read more about the research HERE.
