Scientists and Fishermen Weigh in on NOAA's Shark Fishing Decision

On Christmas day, scientists and fishermen researching sharks in the Palm Beach region, and environs, in Florida, released a video called Shark Science in Jeopardy. It focuses on their efforts to give vital protection to hammerhead, lemon, and tiger sharks in the waters off Florida, with NOAA's decision to change the shark fishing season looming closer. If this decision is not changed, iit will grant access to aggregations of sharks in that area when they are most vulnerable.
