Medsharks, BioBlitz Naples, Italy

The Banco di Croce, in the Italian Gulf of Naples, is probably the largest nursery ground for cat sharks, Scyliorhinus stellaris. Project leader Eleonora de Sabata of Medsharks marks eggcases and monitors their development. She also studies eggcase predation. This is the fourth year of this project and this year, the Dutch Shark Society’s Peter Verhoog was there to document the 4th edition of BioBlitz, an event for which divers gather to mark and document eggcases and somestimes the nocturnal elusive cat shark!
