Monitoring Shark Strandings

Monitoring Shark Strandings

Unfortunatley, an all too common site on our coastline. These pictures were all taken by a paddleboarder out walking his dog on a beach in North Wales on the same day.
Anyone coming across sightings of dead or stranded dogfish/sharks might wish to contact Marine Environmental Monitoring, where the deaths can be recorded and investigated especially if the activity looks suspicous:
