About Summer of the Shark Series

Summer of the Shark Series

Hosted by the Big Fish Lab at Oregon State University, the Summer of the Shark series was designed to bring sharks and shark science to communities throughout Oregon. Come meet Oregon's shark scientists, learn about how they conduct work on local species and beyond, test your knowledge about the predators along our shoreline and get answers to all your burning shark questions!

Before the presentation, join us for a meet and greet with the scientists from the Big Fish Lab, and stick around after for a Q&A. There will be food, drinks, trivia, merchandise for sale and good vibes all around. Plus, a portion of proceeds will go to directly supporting research and students at the Big Fish Lab.

About OSU's Big Fish Lab

Haven't heard of the Big Fish Lab? We are a research group located in Newport, at OSU's Hatfield Marine Science Center. Though we were originally established to fill a gap in our understanding of sharks in Oregon waters, our work also takes us globally - to Ireland, the Maldives, Mexico, South Africa, and more. Our scientists study a variety of topics, from shark moms to shark diet to learning about how sharks will respond to climate change and even how frequently sharks eat plastic. Our work has been featured on both local news and national and international television, including Discovery Channel, National Geographic, and BBC.
