Save Our Seas Supported Scientist Peter Bushnell sent us a link to a video clip, made during a research cruise with R/V Dana from the Technical University of Denmark to
Angmagssalik Fjord, Greenland with 18 scientist from 7 nations.

The general aim of this project is deployment of satellite tags and collection of tissues from Greenland sharks for age determination in order to better understand their movements and the age structure of the population(s).
