The winner of the Venice underwater photo competition is Claudio Stoppato! With a simple and yet beautiful picture of a mermaid’s purse with a diver in the distance, Claudio well summarized the idea of this project: divers can be citizen scientist and contribute their observation to increase knowledge of a little-known shark species, the nursehound shark. Well done Claudio!
The prize-giving ceremony will take place this coming Saturday, Oct 27th in Venice. The exhibit (look at some pictures here) will be on display until November 11th.
