Manx basking shark project provides 'invaluable data'
Three basking sharks tagged in Manx waters will provide "invaluable data" on the species, according to a leading marine scientist in the Isle of Man.
The sharks were tagged by the Manx Basking Shark Watch (MBSW) last summer as part of a research project exploring their winter movement patterns.
MBSW's Jackie Hall said it had been "incredibly successful" and the data could prove "invaluable".
Basking sharks are the second largest fish in the world and feed on plankton.
