Sixgill sharks in Seattle, segment on OPB
Last year, Dive Magazine’s Simon Rogerson and Wetpixel’s Eric Cheng and Matt Segal went to Seattle to dive with sixgill sharks. A team from Oregon Public Broadcasting joined our charter to gather footage for a sixgill shark segment for Oregon Field Guide.
Recreational divers and researchers lure sixgill sharks in for up close encounters. It’s believed Puget Sound is a sixgill shark nursery: a safe place to give birth and raise hundreds or perhaps a thousand or more young sharks.
The show has finally aired; you can see the segment on sixgill sharks embedded in this post.
