Stellenbosch University and the Shark & Marine Research Institute, supported by White Shark Diving Company, is an 8 year old collaboration that has supported the careers of many early career scientists. The scientific research achievements have been considerable and has enabled better decision making for the management of sharks at a governmental level, leading to greater protection for our over exploited and vulnerable shark species.
