How sharks hunt prey — from the first whiff to the final chomp — has been revealed as never before in a new PLOS ONE study by Mote scientists and our collaborators at the University of South Florida and Boston University. The study was supported by the National Science Foundation.
Mote Marine Laboratory has been a leader in marine research since it was founded in 1955. Today, we incorporate public outreach as a key part of our mission. Mote is an independent nonprofit organization and has seven centers for marine research, the public Mote Aquarium and an Education Division specializing in public programs for all ages.
