        Collecting Data on Shark Pups | EARTH A New Wild

        Listen to this marine biologist explain the methods behind shark research and data collection. After catching the animals, data is collected using various standardized measurements on the specimen; after the sampling is finished, these sharks are tagged with a microchip to allow future researchers to track measurements over time. Use this video to show students an example of marine research and data collection, and to introduce concepts about tagging, measurements, or population sampling.
