BBFS PIT Journal 2003

PIT Program 2003 Gill Netting

Successfull gill netting is central to the BBFS PIT Tagging Program. This area of Wetpixel's PIT coverage will present an overview of how gill netting and PIT tagging is done here at the Sharklab.

[see all photos on this page]

Volunteer Team    

the volunteer team

Obviously, an enthusiastic team of volunteers is necessary for successful gill netting. PIT 2003 consists of a team of 22, including staff. Most of the volunteers are marine biologists, with few exceptions.

Shark Pens    

starting a new shark pen

Before gill netting and tagging can begin, shark pens must be constructed at key locations.

The tagging boat must have a large pen to hold all of the captured sharks, and each net boat must have a smaller pen near the end of their gill nets to hold sick sharks and sharks caught during extreme low tides (when their boats may not be able to reach the tagging team).

Pens are made of plastic fencing, rebar, concrete blocks, and zip ties.

Equipment and Prep.    

Fixing gill nets is an integral part of the gill netting process

A considerable amount of preparation is necessary before teams can go out into the field. Gill nets almost always have holes in them after twelve hours of netting sharks, and before they can be used again all of the holes must be fixed by hand.

Each day while the away teams sleep, the home team fixes gill nets, cleans equipment, recharges batteries, and packs up boxes containing everything the away team may need in the field. In addition, the home team cooks dinner and delivers food out into the field late at night.

Gill Net Deployment    

Setting a gill net

Gill nets are set perpendicular from the mangroves and are pulled taut. The water in the lagoons is shallow; the bottom of the net has lead weights attached to it and rests on the lagoon's bottom.

Net Checks    

Doing a net check on foot

Every 15 minutes, net teams must check the nets to see if a shark has become entangled. This is done one of three ways: 1) by boat, if the tide is high enough, 2) by mask, snorkel, and fins, if the boat is away or occupied, or 3) by foot, if the tide is very low.

When a shark is caught, it is de-tangled from the net and transported to the tagging boat for working up. To move a shark from the net to a boat, it is "walked," which moves water through its gills to keep it healthy during transit. When sharks are walked, they wiggle from side to side, as if they are swimming. In this state, it is unclear whether they know that they are being held or not.

Sick sharks are also walked -- or bilged - until they revive.

The tagging team, ready to work up sharks

All caught sharks are brought by boat to the tagging team to be worked up. After working up a shark, it is placed gently into the tagging pen so it is not caught in the nets again. The pen must be checked periodically to make sure that all of the sharks are healthy. To check the pen, a volunteer walks or snorkels around the inside of the perimeter, making sure that all of the sharks are swimming around normally.

There are a few steps to a typical shark workup:

1) The shark is moved from the net boat's transport box to the tagging boat's box.

2) The shark is examined for wounds, parasites, umbilicus state (open or closed), and sex.

3) The shark is scanned to see if it already has a PIT tag (and is therefore a recapture).

4) The shark is measured and weighed

5) If the shark has no PIT tag, it is tagged at the base of the dorsal fin.

6) A DNA sample is punched out of one of the fins. The hole left by DNA sampling wlil scar over and can also be used for identification purposes.

7) The shark is placed in the holding pen.

Typically, the working up process only takes a few minutes, and the shark is completely out of the water only while it is being moved from box to box and while it is being weighed.

Some time during the evening (usually 3-6 hours after the nets have been set, depending on the tide), the home team delivers dinner to the away team. Boats are often tied together for a few minutes of socializing, but when it is too busy, the net boats rendezvous with the dinner boat to pick up food, and then leave immediately.

Shark Maintenance    

The shark pen, with caught sharks in it

Each location (Sharkland and the North Sound) is fished in two groups of three nights, with a break of one to three days between them. This means that caught sharks must be fed for for at least seven days while they are in the holding pen. Sick sharks (very rare) are taken out of the pen and walked until they revive.

After all six nights of tagging, the sharks are released from the pens, with all of the volunteers participating.

The pen is immediately disassembled and is either moved to the next tagging location or is brought back to the Sharklab.

With the final disassembly of the pens, the PIT tagging program ends, leaving behind another year of data to be analyzed and having brought together as friends yet another group of volunteers.

PIT Program 2003 Long Lining

Long-lines are steel cables anchored at both ends, with floats and gangions with baited circle hooks on them alternating along the length of the line. Each float is wrapped in reflective silver tape, and each gangion is wrapped in reflective red or green tape. Long-line checks involve driving along each line, looking for alternating silver and red/green floats. If a gangion is missing, it is likely that a shark has taken the bait and is resting on the bottom, pulling it below the surface. To get to the shark, one of the adjacent floats is pulled up with a boat hook and the boat is pulled along the line until the gangion is reached.

Ultra-realistic drawing of a long-line, by Grant Johnson

Once the shark is found, it is gently pulled to the boat, and the gangion is attached to the cleat on the stern. This is done because large sharks can fairly easily pull the boat in the water if they decide to run, and there can be risk of sinking if the boat is pulled in any direction other than forward. Once the gangion is cleated off, the shark's tail is secured by a tailer (a pole with an adjustable metal loop at the end), which is replaced by a hangman's noose cleated off near the back of the boat. At this point, the shark is considered to be secured to the boat, and the anchor is dropped to prevent drifting too far while the shark is being worked up. All sharks are measured and tagged with a Casey tag. In addition, lemon sharks (being the primary shark that BBFS focuses on) are PIT-tagged and DNA-sampled.

The data from lemon sharks caught on the line supplement the data collected from PIT tagging seasons, especially if a lemon shark caught on the line has a PIT tag in it (meaning that it had been caught in the gill nets as a 0-3 year old).

Long-lining is an opportunity for BBFS volunteers to handle large nurse sharks, blacktip sharks, lemon sharks, and tiger sharks. Since the sharks are often exhausted after fighting on the line, they can be approached with relatively safety, even underwater. Large tiger sharks are caught in almost every cluster of long-lining days, but during this session (much to the surprise of the staff) only a single, small tiger shark was caught.

Can someone let Grant know that a letter showed up for him today reminding him it is time to renew his NAMBLA membership. I can go ahead and pay it but he'll need to pay me back. Thanks.

It is something I may want to try to assist in the future.

Sonny -

It's all my fault. I must apologise for having encouraged Eric Cheng to come to BBFS. In the good old days such subversives would not have been tolerated. He's single-handedldy trying to replace real photography with all this digital mumbo-jumbo. I suggest you cut his o-rings when he's asleep.
