School Shark Observations

I had some correspondence with @alexburton about a project he leads on the species known as School Shark (Galeorhinus galeus)
He is trying to get as many measurements from Galeorhinus galeus that are encountered as possible for his PhD research.
He would appreciate any help with gathering this data.

Here's the link to the project and

Galeorhinus galeus has been recorded in the Bay Area, but there are no San Mateo county sightings yet. BE THE FIRST!

Thanks! To quote the great @vermfly - GET THE FISH! The lack of ray-finned fish and other animals like sharks, is glaring in the iNat database!

They are also making getting the fish a little easier in California. Rather than a state fishing license going from Jan 1st to Dec 31st with no proration it starts from the date of purchase and goes 12 months starting January 1st, 2023. So it will be easier to buy a fishing license any day of the year.
