On this exploratory trip we had two main purposes. The frist to free hooked sharks from the buoys. Freeing hooked sharks in strong currents is never easy. There is an emotional mix during the few minutes that you interact with the shark. On one side you want to act as quickly as possible to end the suffering of the shark, but on the other side if you act too quickly you might even hurt the shark.
One really has to balance emotions as humanly possible to avoid getting the shark hurt in the process, but at the same time freeing the shark as quickly as humanly possible. We were able to free 8 hooked sharks, blues and makos mainly.
Our second purpose was to atract sharks using chuming techniques. We were unfortunate and unable to attract any sharks.. this however is not over. We will be returing the rest of the year to get the job done!
