First diver to tag a Greenland shark underwater

Last updated: September 7, 2017 at 2:49 am

2004 – Jean-Yves “Tag” Forest and Jeffrey Gallant tagged a freeswimming* Greenland shark off Baie-Comeau, Québec, during a science mission led by GEERG in July 2004. Several more sharks were tagged by GEERG divers from 2004 to 2012.

* Freeswimming: All encounters with divers at shallow depths were initiated by the sharks. The sharks were never caught on hook & line, attracted with bait, nor restrained in any way.
